The Story Behind the Blue Bottle Hummingbird Feeder
A hummingbird feeder that brings the energy and vigor of little hummers to your garden while warding off evil spirits??? That's right! Folks in the Southern United States have long used blue bottles placed in trees to ward off evil spirits, a tradition brought to the early colonies by native Africans (similar to glass witch balls, popular throughout the US and Europe in the 18th century). It is believed the spirits are dazzled by the color of the glass in the sun and once they enter the bottle, they can't find their way out unless the bottle breaks. Our hummingbird feeder builds upon this popular folk legend and adds the modern ability to attract joyful hummingbirds - the perfect combination for the garden!
An inverted cobalt blue glass bottle is bound by a flattering solid copper hanger that spirals about the glass, decorated with brass leaves and spirals. Below the bottle, 2 hummingbird feeding ports sprout up, created with copper tubing. Each feeding station features a fired red copper flower, plastic bee guard and brass perch, forming the perfect attraction for hummingbirds. The feeding ports work as a single unit, held in place by a single removable rubber grommet for easy refills. Colored copper flowers are fired with translucent finishes for long lasting durability. Holds 13 oz. of liquid. All metal portions are designed and created by hand in Tennessee.
