This item is very heavy about 60 pounds & measures approximately 32" tall x 22 1/4" wide x 4" deep. It does have some wiring on the top maybe for electric for a light. The finish looks nickel plated on the front but may just be painted silver. The bottom part of the cage does flips up. This piece is about 100 years old and will be sold as is as shown. Please look over the photos and feel free to ask questions.
