During the 19th century in Europe a customary gift to the object of one's affections was a caged bird, considered an exotic gift as the birds usually were brought in by sailing vessels from sea voyages to other continents.  Such a gift meant one was serious about courting!  The Antique French Trumeau combines the best of wall decorations ~ the mirror and the painting ~ into one exceptionally appealing decorative artifact.  Originally built into the walls, they are now available to fortunate 21st century collectors to continue their unrelenting task of providing pleasure and beauty no matter where they're hung!
