Wonderful and rare automaton music box with clock and birds, made in the late 1800s. It has a large tree made of papier-mâché with silk leaves and flowers. In front and to the left of the tree is a small clock that chimes on the hour. In front and to the right of the tree is a waterfall. There are four birds in and around the tree. One is on the top, a lovely bright red that flaps his wings. The second is in the tree and flies (yes, flies) from one branch to another. The third sits atop the clock, and the fourth is on the ground moving its head as it drinks from the waterfall. All four birds are completely feathered with real feathers. While all this is going on, the music box is playing and the birds are chirping. It is in excellent condition with the clock, music box and birds all in great working condition. As expected with an item of this age, the leaves and flowers are faded, and there is very slight damage to the back side of the tree. This is a rare and wonderful piece. It measures 25″ tall and l7″ wide. The item “Antique Automaton Clock/Music Box Local Pickup Only” is in sale since Sunday, December 24, 2017.

Full item description text is below the video. The video may not play on all mobile apps. Very rare and fine antique singing bird box crafted by one of the early fusee wind singing bird box tabatiere masters (Charles Bruguier of Switzerland). The early fusee wind bird boxes are an entirely different specimen from the standard and later going barrel bird boxes. Watch the video and you will immediately notice the complexity and length of the bird song and the superior bird automation, which includes a rotating head. Charles Bruguier signed and numbered each of his exquisite pieces which are extensively featured in Flights of Fancy by Christian Bailly. I have two other Charles Bruguier bird boxes that I may decide to sell down the road. IF YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A SUPERB FUSEE WIND SINGING BIRD BOX WITH ZERO WORRIES, THIS IS IT. The engraving on this case is superior to most Charles Bruguier cases and the overall condition is outstanding with zero damage or repair to the hand painted enamel scenes. The bird song is especially complex with a lot of high note trills and the song is also pleasantly long in duration. The bird is brilliantly colored featuring iridescent feathers (red, several shades of blue and green, gold and even pink, which is rare). 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 original movement is also in excellent condition (just fully serviced) and works exactly as it should. The movement is properly marked for Charles Bruguier and the serial number is 519 which matches the interior case number as well so the movement is original to this case. The bird animates perfectly as follows: wings flap up/down, beak opens/closes, tail flutters up/down and the head rotates all the while singing to a beautiful oscillating bird song that is synchronized to the bird animation.
