Isn't this referred to as the Whiskers Cage?

This was a tableau cage, one of ten to twelve constructed for Barnum & London by Fielding of New York for 1883. Christy bought it out of RBBB's Bridgeport quarters in the late 1920s, along with a second tableau cage. This one was reconstructed by Disney and again at Baraboo. Each of the dens had a theme, of sorts, embodied in the corner statues and side panels.
