You are considering a vintage French architectural domed wood and wire birdcage. Painted prussian blue the cage shows little wear to the painted finish, though I do not believe the paint to be the original and guess that it was repainted at some time. Cage is near perfect with no broken wires, all ball finials and top finial secure and in place. The spring wired door works perfectly and the cage retains its upper swing. The bottom opens with a pin and the front flap opens as well. It measures 24" tall x 6" deep x 10" wide. Beautiful as a decorative piece and a practical usable cage for canaries or finches.
Both Martha Stewart Living magazine's articles on cage collecting and the Birdcage Book by Leslie Garisto are fantastic references for the new collector and show similar cages to this one. Timeless these cages are sought after by decorators and can be seen in magazines like House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Coastal and Country Living, etc.
