Cement bird bath

As Jethro of the Beverly Hillbillies would say, it's a
"see-ment pond" for birds! Nice vintage garden item with clam shell top. Some of the blue paint has worn off with age.

Glass chicken water dish

Cool glass Sani-Fount chicken waterer. I was at an auction a couple of weeks ago and was outbid on one of these. This past Weds. night I was at another auction, and there was another one! I got lucky this time, and here it is. Having raised chickens myself, I love any chicken feeding items, and think this is pretty neat! SOLD!
