Chinese Antique Song Cages

Recommended Posts

My love of song mules goes back to the early 70's and while I'm in Asia I will be buying a few of these cages to take home with me. Before I end up carrying these halfway around the world does anyone know if these cages are for sale in the UK?

You're right these are expensive and I may lug just one back to the UK if I can't buy one there.

 

By the way anyone remember the pub called Knave of Spades at Bethnal Green, I used to go there after visiting Brick Lane market to buy a few beers and a bird or two. The market and birds being sold will be long gone now as that was around 1979, great times meeting fellow mule breeders....

Thanks, these are used for White Eyes or Pekin Robins but I plan to use it for a Goldie Mule.

Song birds hanging in the local market Singapore. These are not for sale but hung out by locals.

I liked going there after a good mooch in the market, always left with a couple of Goldie's and some bird lime made for Holly, for a Southern Pub the ale wasn't too bad either.

I haven't a clue why the pics so small,i just took it off an external hard-drive :blink: I took the pic a few years ago in Honkers,thousands of these in bird street lining the walls,bird street is the place Michael palin was attacked by the cockatoo in one of his travel programs,it ripped his trouser leg.
