Full item description text is below the video. The video may not play on all platforms so I also included a YouTube video link beneath the first video file. Video will open in a new window. 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. IF YOU HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A SUPERB FUSEE WIND SINGING BIRD BOX WITH ZERO WORRIES, THIS IS IT. 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 334 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. PLEASE EXPLORE MY OTHER LISTINGS. CONSULTATIONS ARE FREE AS I ENJOY SHARING WHAT I KNOW. Troy Duncan, CPA, retired.
