Flawless example crafted circa 1890-1895 by flajoulot of paris, france. This antique singing bird box catches your eye from across the room and the exceptionally sweet singing bird song yet amazingly quiet running mechanism is equally pleasant to your ears. Of all going barrel based singing bird boxes that were ever crafted, the early pieces made by flajoulot of paris france are without question, the best sounding and playing singing bird box that one can own. The mechanical bird is a virtual plethora of iridescent rainbow colors further complimented by a highly complex and uncommon bird feather design. The bird colors are comprised of iridescent red, gold, orange, pink, blue and green. Pastel sheen feathers were also used: the breast is adorned with a light blue feather design and towards the back of the body, near the tail, a pastel red design. The beak is either ivory or bone. Iridescent feathers present themselves differently depending upon the light source and viewing angle. I tried to capture the beauty of this bird using different angles but photos never do these feathers justice. Early flajoulot movements are of exceptional quality using blued steel springs instead of coil springs, extra thick plates, fine finishing work and an elaborate governor mechanism that allows the movement to run whisper quiet – the most quiet running singing bird box mechanism that was designed and crafted. Similar to early fusee wind bird boxes, flajoulot movements are signed and numbered and this one is numbered 925; an example numbered 1248 was vetted geoffrey t. Mayson with a crafting date of 1900. For all of the reasons mentioned, i also have a flajoulot in my personal collection. The case is either bronze or brass with a very thick gold overlay that is in wonderful condition. I fully serviced (cleaned, adjusted, lubricated) the mechanical movement so this singing bird box operates perfectly. Singing bird box described as “antique”. This significantly impacts both current value and future value appreciation. The bird animates perfectly as follows: wings flap up/down, beak opens/closes, tail flutters up/down, bird turns left/right all the while singing to a beautiful oscillating bird song that is synchronized to the bird animation. Please explore my other listings. Consultations are free as i enjoy sharing what i know.
