This beautiful baluster-style bird bath, after James Gibbs is one of our larger birdbaths standing 3ft high and over 2ft wide. The turned fluted baluster shaft is decorated with leaf moldings at the base.
The use of water in the garden to nurture nature is seen most obviously in the use of a birdbath. With interest in gardening expanding to the upwardly mobile middle class in the 1800s more homeowners turned to gardening as a way to spend time outside and to increase their property values. Birdbaths were one of the first garden ornaments that were easily purchased and a simple, yet satisfying, focal point for a new garden.
Please note: The version of the Gibbs Birdbath shown here has developed a nice weathered patina. The original color of the statue is Portland limestone. If you would like to fast forward nature, please ask us about our hand staining weathered finish.
