I have a Rikden birdbath. It is about 45 years old and is beginning to break up. Rikden birdbaths were handmade of glassfibre with a sand lining. Circular, about 2 feet diameter with three stubby legs. The best birdbath I've ever seen.

All the modern birdbaths I've come across are made of metal, pottery or plastic with slippery surfaces, are too small or on a pedestal.

Does anyone know of a birdbath that resembles the Rikden or anything that will be a suitable replacement?
