I've been wanting to use this partitioned silverplate server for a while and finally got after it. The ends of spoons make for perches and some serve as the support points for the suspending chains. The small candy dish made a great top and the birds came from some ornate napkin holders. This one has the option of putting out two different bird seed varieties with the partition in the middle. Small holes were drilled in the bottom for any drainage needs with rain.  A large silverplate server handle plays a big part in the top suspending chain.
