    Product Details

    Originally known as the #18 birdbath, the Summer Garden style was originally produced in the 40's by Robinson Ransbottom Pottery. Now reproduced by Burley, it continues to be the most recognizable historic design. This style has gotten some color upgrades since Robinson Ransbottom was around but each top still has the R.R.P stamp on the bottom.

    This birdbath is 100% handcrafted with rich clay deposits in Roseville, Ohio. Burley is the last American Made pottery factory around. We still make pottery using the lost art of Jiggering and some of our jiggermen go back generations. The tops are non-locking, but don’t worry, we also have Birdbath Adhesive available on our site for those wishing for a little more secure top. Just check out our Accessories page.  

    Top: 17.5"d x 4"h 
    Pedestal: 20.5" h  : 4"d(top) & 10.25"d(base)
    Weight: 13lbs / 14lbs 

    Care Instructions

    Place your birdbath away from foliage where predators hide.
    Place your birdbath a few yards from trees so that birds can perch on limbs and groom themselves.
    Keep water fresh to attract birds and prevent algae.
    Add Burley Clay’s birdbath fillers or rocks for birds to land on when drinking or bathing.
    To prevent water from freezing in your birdbath in the winter use a de-icer.
    If your birdbath cannot be maintained in the winter turn your birdbath top over or take indoors. Freezing water may cause cracking.


    Does it freeze?
    A: Yes. Our products are not freeze-proof and if any water is allowed to sit in the tops and freeze, it will cause cracking and then will break. Winter storage is always recommended to prevent any damages. You can get full year use out of your birdbath if you use a birdbath heater for the colder months.

    Are the glazes safe and free of toxins?
    A: Yes, all of our glazes are safe for the birds. All of our glazes are free of lead and cadmium.

    Will the handpainting fade?
    A: Unfortunately yes, but this takes many, many years. Like most things left outdoors, they will eventually fade. If you have one of our Handpainted birdbath sets and see your piece fading, you can find Outdoor Paint and touch it up for a personal touch. 

    Is it really made with local Ohio clay?
    A: Yes it really is made right here in Roseville, Ohio! We have a local clay mine, which is dug weekly and hauled down the road a few miles to our factory in Roseville. Everything is made on site here, from dirt to finished product and then shipped directly to you. We make about half of our glazes ourselves and source the others from our friends at Mayco in Columbus, OH!

    My top broke on my birdbath, is there anything I can do?
    A: Sadly no, once they are broken there is not much you can do. Most glues are not safe for the wildlife that will be enjoying your birdbath. If you only have hairline cracks in your top and want to prevent further damage - we recommend using FlexSeal Clear. Once the sealant has cured for 24hrs, it is safe for the birds.

    How do I clean my birdbath?
    A: Use a wildlife friendly cleaner to scrub any dirt and gunk away. Some of our staff use a bucket of hot water and some Comet to clean theirs. Just mix comet with the water and scrub until clean. Rinse thoroughly Do not let the mixture soak in the bath.

    How do I clean the Birdbath Fillers?
    A: You can clean the fillers the same way as you clean the birdbath tops. Use a wildlife friendly cleaner and a good scrub brush to scrub the gunk off the fillers and then rinse them off really well. Don't let the fillers sit in the solution for too long either.

    My item arrived broken, now what do I do?
    A: If any of your items arrive broken, don't sweat it! Take a picture of the damaged item(s) and send it to us in an email with your name & address and we will send out a replacement at no cost to you.

    Delightful addition

    Very pleased with this birdbath. I had a stone one, which looked beautiful, but was too heavy to handle. This one not only looks lovely in the yard, but the bowl is easy to lift. The birds haven't used it yet, but I know that'll take a little time. So, I haven't actually cleaned it yet, but I really want to keep it clean for our birds, and ease of handling will help me keep that commitment. The smooth surface, too, should make it easier to keep clean. I have read that birds prefer rough surfaces to roost on, so I added a couple of rocks to the bowl, which also help keep my floating solar bubbler in the center. So although it hasn't yet been officially endorsed by the birds, this bath should be a great fit for what I wanted for my yard.

    Love our new birdbath!

    Burley Clay was extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with! After exchanging ideas about what we wanted, they were very willing to try things and able to come up with a beautiful set that we absolutely love! Thank you Burley Clay! We are enjoying the new birdbath and so are the birds in our garden!

    Simply Stunning

    I fell in love with this bird bath online, but had trouble finding it because most of the vendors who had it on their websites had discontinued carrying it. I finally found it on Burley's website, and even though it said "Sold Out" I started a chat and learned it would soon be available again. Burley employee April was wonderful to deal with. She was sweet, personable and professional. I get the impression she has a very busy work day, yet she takes time to assist clients, and she does it well. The bird bath got here 2 days after we spoke. It came in 2 boxes, and both were packed extremely well, so it got here in great shape. It's just what I wanted - so pretty. I love seeing it in my back yard every day!

    Absolutely Beautiful!!!

    Our order arrived in perfect condition. It was exactly what we anticipated from the Burley website. Thank goodness Burley used the best packing materials to secure our order. The biggest question is, "Would we order something again from Burley?"... it's an absolute, "YES!"
