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.
