The Sweet Life

So pretty that you'll wish you were a hummingbird, this beautifully decorated feeder is made from recycled milk glass and features a raised floral and hummingbird decorative pattern.

Milk glass can be traced back to 16th century England, but grew popular in Europe at the turn of the 19th century and in America especially in 1950-1960s. This particular feeder is handmade by Mexican artists, who add pigment to the milk glass (a common practice) to enhance the pattern on the glass. In this feeder there are blue veins that add contrast to the bas-relief hummingbird and floral pattern.

Perfect for high-traffic areas, this feeder holds 20 oz. and includes flower feeding tubes in red glass for easy feeding. The decanter-style top allows you to refill and clean it easily. Includes instructions and hook for hanging.

        When I saw this product for sale, since I collect antique milk glass, I naturally couldn't resist it. It has a raised pattern of hummingbirds and flowers to make the milk glass feeder even more beautiful and unusual. I love the milk glass stopper instead of an ugly rubber stopper for example. A delightful feeder,easy to fill and clean.

          The product is of great quality, and beautiful design. We haven't had a chance to use it yet (as it's January in Illinois), but hopefully it works as well as it looks!

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was so prompt, we weren't even expecting the package when it arrived! Product was packaged very well and no parts were broken or missing when it arrived.

          Comments about RECYCLED MILK GLASS HUMMINGBIRD FEEDER:

          I loved the look of this unique feeder, and loved even more that it was made of recycled glass, etc. But it is just not functional. It's very small for such a large price tag!!! Furthermore, all the pieces are glass, and simply sit inside the openings...I've dropped the red flowers more than I care to admit, and I've been lucky that it's been on carpet or they would have broken or chipped. The top opening piece just sits on the top, so I'm concerned for the day when it just slips out.

          Ultimately, the feeder doesn't do what it's supposed to do: hold hummingbird liquid. Because it's so low and flat, if you fill it up all the way, the water leaks out of the flower holes. So that means you can't fill it up very much, and being so small, it's almost not worth it. I was really excited for this, but now I'm disappointed. The piece is too fragile, and not functional enough.

            I bought this for a Mother's Day gift.[...]It was small, but I expected it to be after the reviews I read before purchase. It's beautifully handcrafted and very unique looking, perfect for a Mother's Day gift. I would say since it's made with recycled glass, the milky white color had a bluish hue to it. I thought it made it look different so I liked the slight difference, but some buyers might not think so. I think I might buy one for me next!

                  Feeder was really beautiful. Prettier than expected really. It was heavy and seemed very durable. The top and feeder tubes come right off and go easily back on for easy cleaning.
