Object Description

An antique glazed stoneware birdbath by Lefco dating to circa 1900. This Victorian birdbath is an elegant design for a classically styled traditional garden, the subtle details and decorative design enhanced by a smooth cream-brown glaze. It features a fluted pedestal and a shallow dish, surrounded by stylised leaves and foliage to the outside.

This birdbath would look stunning as a centrepiece in the courtyard of a period or contemporary style townhouse or patio of a country property.


Founded in 1889, Lefco, also known as Leeds Fireclay Company Limited, based in Wortley, Leeds, had several factories making various products including bricks, sanitary ware, and pottery, for over 60 years before it closed in 1957.
