This handcrafted pedestal style bird bath has been skillfully crafted from clay by artisan here in the USA and hand processed, fired in kilns and then hand painted in a lovely turquoise blue color that is simple, yet elegant. The bowl top interlocks onto the base to hold it securely together so you and your birds will enjoy it for many many years to come. The inside of the bird bath has been glazed for sealing the ceramic to hold the water in the bowl. It is also advisable to keep the water fresh to attract birds and to prevent algae buildup. Position your birdbath near trees and bushes so birds can perch and groom themselves in between watering and bathing. In colder climates, it is advisable to remove the bath to prevent cracking or add a de-icer for winter. Size is 16.75″ in diameter x 21.5″ tall. This birdbath is also available in two other colors, sold separately at: Turquoise Simply Elegant Clay Bird Bath Set and Deep Blue Simply Elegant Clay Bird Bath Set. This item ships in 5-7 days..
