A darling whimsical petite singing bird in a gold tone brass birdcage. This bird sings a sweet tune with a twist of the crank on the bottom of the cage. Flip the switch on the side to turn the singing on or off after the crank is wound. The tail wobbles up and down and its beak chatters as the bird sings. Green foliage with delicate red flowers adorn the floor of the cage. A sweet little addition to any curio cabinet.
Date: Midcentury Materials: Brass, velvet, feathers Measurements: 11" x 6" Markings: None Condition: Fair. This automaton has seen a little love and is priced accordingly. The bird is missing some of it's feathers and the green has worn off from some of the foliage. The metal base has wear and pitting to the metal. However, mechanically this automaton works wonderfully.
