Full item description text is below the video. The video may not play on all mobile apps. ANTIQUE GOLD GILT, ENAMEL SINGING BIRD BOX IN THE SHAPE OF A PIANO (WITH HIDDEN JEWELRY COMPARTMENT) THAT WAS CRAFTED BY FLAJOULOT OF PARIS FRANCE IN THE 1910s/1920s. A wonderful example crafted by renowned maker Flajoulot. Overall cosmetic and mechanical condition is excellent. The lid features a hand painted scene on the top and reverse and this is true fired enamel. The bird is exceptionally colorful. There is a hidden compartment where you can place jewelry or other small treasures. The gold gilt case is well crafted and in outstanding condition. The bird is highly colorful boasting blue, green, red and ember colored iridescent hummingbird feathers and pastel yellow 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 but cameras never do these feathers justice. The piano case measures 15 x 9.5 x 6.5 cm. I fully serviced (cleaned, adjusted, lubricated) the mechanical movement so this singing bird box operates perfectly. 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.

Circa 1890 musical automaton manufactured by Gustave Vichy. Seated upon a wooden bench stands a clown with a paper mache head with beautiful facial expression with glass eyes, closed mouth with painted teeth, brown hair wig, carton torso, bisque arms and legs, wearing striped silk costume and on his waistcoat, has an ornament with the shape of a dragonfly, black shoes, and a top hat on his head (the top hat is fixed on the wig with a hair clip). In his left hand, he holds a tambourine and in his right hand he holds a mask. When wound, music plays and the movements begin: he turns his head from side-to-side, raises his right hand holding the mask to eye level, raises the left hand to play the tambourine and moves his legs. A spring-driven clockwork movement is hidden within his bench. The movement is stamped G. Vichy Paris and it has its original key. Dimensions: wooden bench approximately 6.7 inches (17cm) wide and 9.4 inches (24cm) height. Total height approximately 21.3 inches (54 cm). Thanks for your interest. Video will open in a new window.
