GORGEOUS ANTIQUE SINGING BIRD BOX CRAFTED BY FLAJOULOT OF PARIS FRANCE CIRCA 1900. AN EXCEPTIONALLY WELL PRESERVED EXAMPLE. Flajoulot is widely recognized as the highest quality post fusee-wind singing bird box maker. His movements, when properly serviced, run especially smooth and quiet while producing an amazingly sweet bird song. The animation of the bird is also superior to all others. For these reasons, I have several of his pieces in my personal collection as their performance continues to delight even someone like me that has heard so many singing bird boxes. The bird is highly colorful boasting a rainbow of colorful iridescent hummingbird feathers. 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 in my video and photos but cameras never do these feathers justice. Overall cosmetic and mechanical condition is excellent. The original tortoise shell case boasts an elegant and clean design. When the light reflects off the case at a certain angle, one will see why antique tortoise shell is so alluring as blond and walnut colored natural designs come to life against the ebony background. I took one photo using a light source behind the empty tortoise shell case so one can see how mystical these treasures are. Into the HD quality photos so you can see more than the human eye can. I fully serviced (cleaned, adjusted, lubricated) the mechanical movement so this singing bird box operates perfectly. I applied four clear cushions to the case bottom to protect the case from accidental banging. Buyers should be cautious when purchasing an antique singing bird box – always insist on seeing a photo of the mechanical movement for any 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.
