This small gourd has lovely markings (see pictures). This little birdhouse stands approximately 10" high and measures 16.5" around at the widest part (5" wide). The entrance is 1.5" wide, suitable for swallows, warblers, finches, and hairy woodpeckers. The green braided twine hanger is fishing line reinforced and hangs 17". This could be used as a birdhouse, floral accent, or lightly sanded and used for pyrography. The burl like markings on the top half would accent any use.
