Please view the video below to see and hear this beautiful old piece making its magic. The wooden stand measures 16 1/2 wide, 8 3/8 deep and 2 3/4 tall. The entire piece stands 14 tall. The stand is covered in paper and nailed together. We are not sure of the maker of this piece and there are no markings at all that we could see. We believe it was made in the late 1800s to the very early 1900s. The clowns are composition with some wooden parts underneath. You can see the joints at their hands and feet, this is not damage, only how the clowns were made so that they could move. Their faces were hand painted, the colors are still vibrant and bright. The clown on the right has some water marks on the left side of his clothing and his hat. No other signs of water damage, it looks like it may have been a spill.

FRENCH BIRD MUSICAL AUTOMATON Here’s a nice example of a c. 1890 musical bird automaton, made in France. Measures 25″ high x 18″ wide x 9 high. French 7-day pendulum clock with 3.5 porcelain face. 5 birds, 2 of which are animated. 2-tune music box (wound by pull-string). The animation movements are activated by a side lever, and is wound with a separate key. The music box has the pull-rods normally associated with this genre; one for stop-start and the other for changing tunes. The dome is a plastic replacement, with a few cracks and a small missing section at the rear, but overall presenting a nice appearance. When activated the birds “chirp” by virtue of a mechanical device inside (this is not a bellows movement). Two of the birds are animated, one at the glass-rod “waterfall” (drinking) and the other yellow bird flapping his wings. Everything has been professionally serviced and working fine.

Full item description text is below the video. The video may not play on all mobile apps. The sky blue enamel case is absolutely amazing and the enamel is perfect (no damage or repairs). Gorgeous hypnotic effect guilloche tooling, solid gold appliques and engravings adorn this exquisite case. The case is solid sterling silver, gold gilt and is hallmarked. This was crafted by a rather uncommon singing bird box maker, OMM, in the late 1880’s/early 1890’s. OMM helped Karl Griesbaum establish his factory in the early 1900s. The guilloche designs beneath the enamel are exceptional and the gorgeous enamel color presents differently depending upon the viewing angle and light source. The same hold trues for the iridescent nature of the hummingbird feathers. True fired enamel with expertly applied gold appliques is very rare and this case is superb in every respect. The bird is one nicest you will find on a going barrel bird box with brilliantly colored iridescen feathers (pink, red, green, blue and gold). 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 solid brass and pinned mechanical movement is also in excellent condition and was just fully restored, including the bellows. OMM movements are different than most with a very long and rear positioned governor fan. This movement is exceptionally sturdy. In summary, this is a fantastic antique singing bird box in amazing cosmetic and mechanical condition. 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 all the while singing to a beautiful oscillating bird song that is synchronized to the bird animation.

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.

ANTIQUE GOLD GILT, SOLID STERLING SILVER. 930 AND GUILLOCHE SINGING BIRD BOX (CIRCA LATE 1800’s / early 1900’s). The guilloche tooling is amazing on this bird box and offers the illusion of zigzag patterns when in fact, the guilloche tooling is a series of wavy radial lines. It is very cool. The case is well crafted and in outstanding condition. The bird is highly colorful boasting a blue, green and red 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 but cameras never do these feathers justice. This was crafted by the enigmatic German singing bird maker OMM. The OMM firm worked closely with Karl Griesbaum when Karl was first starting to craft singing bird boxes and also joined efforts with the Swiss firm of Raymy later on. OMM bird box movements always have the governor fan positioned to the rear and they are uncommon. I fully serviced (cleaned, adjusted, lubricated) the mechanical movement so this singing bird box operates perfectly. I also restored the bird using brand new parts.

Full item description text is below the video. The video may not play on all mobile apps. A truly rare example crafted by Antoine Salmon in the late 1800s/very early 1900s. The guilloche and enamel is flawless without any repair or damage. This example is also diminutive in size and oval which is also very rare. In summary, a very rare singing bird box in outstanding 100% original condition that rivals the early fusee wind bird boxes. You will not find a better “going barrel wound” singing bird box anywhere. Antoine Salmon crafted the best singing bird boxes of his time and examples from his workshop are rarely found. This bird box is truly special due to the cosmetic & mechanical condition, the rare size and shape and the perfect enamel. When you listen to the bird song, you will immediately notice how smooth and quiet the mechanism runs while at the same time the bird song is both sweet and loud. This is a true engineering marvel that rivals the fusee wound bird boxes crafted in the early 1800s. The original bird is boasts colored iridescent feathers (purple, lavender, red, green, blue and gold). 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 solid brass and pinned mechanical movement is also in excellent condition. The diminutive nature of this singing bird box required a special mechanical movement that was 100% crafted by hand and even the bellows are curved to accommodate the oval case. The governor utilizes a centrifugal force mechanism like Flajoulot which is one reason this movement runs so smooth and quiet. In summary, this is a fantastic antique singing bird box in amazing cosmetic and mechanical condition. I fully serviced (cleaned, adjusted, lubricated) the mechanical movement so this singing bird box operates perfectly. I also rebuilt the tiny bird so it works 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 all the while singing to a beautiful oscillating bird song that is synchronized to the bird animation.

Antique Music Box with Automaton Swallows. Switzerland, 19th Century



Antique Music Box with Automaton Swallows. Awesome antique music box with automaton swallows, manufactured in Switzerland in the 19th century and in excellent working order. The box is gorgeous outside and inside, with a lovely wooden finish outside and a great black lacquered inside. The metal movement stands out on the shiny black background and so do the delicate and colorful metal birds. The music box keeps all its original component parts and pieces except for the paper sheet with the tune list and the dustcap. Anyway, these details do not interfere at all with its fine design or its great working order. The box itself is made of solid beech wood with a beautiful golden color and a delicately pronounced veneer. It is made up of lean planks with no decoration at all except for the two light-colored wooden marquetry rectangles that embellish the lid. It stands on four small black-lacquered wooden legs; this black finish also covers the lids beveled edge and the inside of the box. The contrast between the light and clear wood and the profound black lacquer makes up a really attractive piece. All the finishes have been carefully restored so today the music box shows off a striking look. If the box itself is gorgeous, so is its delicate movement. It is made up of brass gears and silvery pieces; it preserves the original comb with all its teeth and the tune cylinder in perfect condition. We can also see the three small automaton swallows, painted in fine colors and moving towards three bells in order to hit them with their becks. It is a charming and outstanding set that combines the precision and quality of Swiss manufacturing with the beauty of a state-of-art design. Every lover of delicate and special pieces will appreciate this wonderful antique music boxs beauty and excellent working order. Measurements: Width: 18.10 in / 46 cm. Height: 8.66 in / 22 cm. Depth: 11 in / 28 cm. IMPORTANT – SEE ALL THE PICTURES. This is an antique or vintage item , not a new item, and it’s not perfect as a new one. It may have minor scratches or hits not mentioned in this description but than can be seen in the many photos published with it. Scroll down the description to see all the photos. Photos are part of the description, because a picture is worth a thousand words. Please, study the pictures as part of the description and if you have any doubt ask me. Also be aware that when I say that an antique item is in perfect working conditions, doesn’t mean that it works as new. A machine with 100 years is not prepared to be working everyday during hours, except my antique clocks. Many things can happen inside an antique mechanism and today’s perfectly working spring, could be the future’s failure as far away as in 10 years or as near as the next month. It’s impossible to know exactly when. If necessary, we restore and/or repair and finally clean and/or adjust, all our antique machines, and if it’s there’s a defect or malfunctions, it’s clearly indicated in the description, video or pictures, but these machines are still antiques. For example, an antique car, a Ford T from 1910, may be in perfect working conditions, but this doesn’t mean that it works as new or that you can use this antique car as an everyday car to go to your job. I want to leave this clear as part of the description. Antiques, even in perfect working conditions, can’t be guaranteed as a new or second hand item. Not only the antique itself has 100 years old or more, but also each spring, screw, wheel and gear of its mechanism has also 100 years or more. Of course, if something happens we can help to solve the problem, even repairing it, we know experts in many areas, but understand that even a perfectly working antique is still an antique. I think I left nothing in the description but if I forgot something, I’ll be glad to answer any questions. We are professional antique dealers. Simply shop away and then request the total from us. Enjoy my articles and I hope we keep in touch. Thanks for trusting me and enjoy! Best wishes from Spain. Theres a Video on YouTube.

Many collectors have became millionairs. If you are starting a collection, follow these important tips. If you want to invest in antiques, always choose original pieces and avoid reproductions. A reproduction loses half of its value in the same minute that you are purchasing it, while an original antique gains value each passing day. This is an original antique and its value will continue growing tomorrow. Read and learn about for area of interest: swords, clocks, phonographs, antique photos, old silver, technical antiques, typewriters… Invest in books as much as in your collection and learn as much as you can. If you keep your collecction catalogued, you will increase its value. Keep yourself informed about the market prices in your area of interest. Collect antiques, not junk. It is always better a small collection with excellent pieces than a huge collection of junk, rusty irons and broken machines. There is not a goal to reach, so take the pleasure in in the process of your treasure hunting. A collection should be something to enjoy, and there is many interesting pieces out there and very few time to enjoy them, so be selective with your choices. If you follow these simple steps you will be in the correct direction to develop an excellent collection, whatever is your area of interest and, for me the most important of all, enjoying the process. WHO WE ARE & ABOUT ME. Saragossa is a Spanish medium size city of 700.000 people, located just in the middle of the way between Madrid and Barcelona, 300 kms from each one, and also equidistant 300 kms. To other cities as Bilbao and Valencia. Its an antique city founded by the Romans, by the Emperor Caesar Augustus more than 2000 years ago, capital of the powerful antique Kingdom of Aragon, 900 years ago and during the Medieval times, and first defeat of Napoleons troops in Europe during the Napoleonic Wars in the early 19th Century, among other History.. Here I was born, here I live, and here I have my small antiques shop. We are proffesional antique dealers. I started in this world as a collector. My father introduced me into the world of antique collectibles and I started my own antique search at flea markets for my own small antiques collections since I was very young. I’ve been a professional antique dealer since the year 2003, when I decided to join my passion with my way of living. And more than 20 years as a collector, and I still have a lot to learn and only a little to teach. We are a registered legal antique bussiness, here in Spain. I have a small shop open to the public in Saragossa and we are open from 9:00 to 19:00 hours, Madrid time. You are welcome to visit me whenever you wish. And finally, as I mentioned before, I have my own web shop, for 5 years now, in Spanish language although it can be translated to almost any language using the Google Translator button, in the upper part of the web page. The translation is not perfect but its good in an 80%, totally understandable and you can always ask me. Mainly, I started specialized in Antique machines as Gramophone – Phonographs, music boxes, clocks, watches but today, I also work with other first class collector items as cameras, militaria, antique scientific instruments To be exact, nowadays, I work with any first class antique that I could find at a correct price and that we could transport worldwide. We have a wide experience in packing and sending safely World Wide, from China and Singapore, to Dallas, San Francisco, New York or London, Canada, and of course almost all European Countries, many American ones including Mexico, Argentina and Colombia, and not forgetting Australia, South Africa, Israel and some in the Middle East as Catar and Emirates. We have sent successfully, from fragile items as Chinese Porcelain, to heavy items as Slot Coin Machines, not together into the same box, of course! . We can send almost everything with security, no matter how big or heavy it is, if the client wants to pay the price, because some heavy or big items or delicate items into big boxes are specially expensive to send, not perhaps within Europe, but sometimes to America or Asia and some require custom made packing, as custom made wooden boxes or special foam for transport protection. We work with Selected pieces. All my items are first class collectors items, in excellent conditions , conservation state or/and working conditions. If talking about antique machines, most of them are in perfect working conditions, perfect conservation state or perfectly restored. The few that are not, because it was not possible to repair it, it’s clearly indicated. I like to work with the best pieces that I can find. I prefer to work only with selected pieces. Selected’ doesnt mean’unaffordable’. My pieces have very correct prices, depending on the rarity and the conservation state of the piece itself. Every piece has a price rank, from junk state to museum state, that I consider is the highest one. Selected means that I prefer to work with Museum State pieces, or near, and First Class collectors items, or near rather than other kind of low quality pieces. We guarantee the description and datation of all our pieces. I always give guarantee my descriptions, not only in general antiques, but even in the working condition of an antique machine. Of course, to be completely sincere, its mainly impossible to give a full guarantee in the working condition of an antique working machine with over or more than 100 years. Many things can happen inside an antique mechanism and todays perfectly working spring, could be the futures failure as far away as in ten years or as near as the next month. If necessary, we restore and/or repair and finally clean and/or adjust, all our antique machines, and if its there’s a defect or malfunctions, its clearly indicated in the description, video or pictures. We try to have all our pieces in perfect working conditions, but if a disaster occurs and the item gets out of order or damaged, for any reason, we can help to solve the problem or to help to repair it or to restore it. We work with first class professionals that can restore from antique medieval paintings to 13th Century silver, other metals as iron, copper and bronze, to any kind of wood. Also, we can repair antique machines as Gramophone – Phonographs, antique clocks, typewriters and antique mechanical calculators. Our Priority is your satisfaction. And the most important of all, we always take great care of the customer service. Clients experience with antiques should be always pleasant and happy, or, if this is not completely possible, at least satisfactory and full of joy. Our workonly ends, not when we sell the piece, but when our client have the piece in his hands, safely and in good conditions. I speak English fluently, some French, and, of course, Spanish. Thanks for reading this, I hope to deal with you soon, and we stay in touch. The item “Antique Music Box with Automaton Swallows.

FRENCH BIRD MUSICAL AUTOMATON Here’s a nice example of a c. 1890 musical bird automaton, made in France. Measures 25″ high x 18″ wide x 9 high. French 7-day pendulum clock with 3.5 porcelain face. 5 birds, 2 of which are animated. 2-tune music box (wound by pull-string). The animation movements are activated by a side lever, and is wound with a separate key. The music box has the pull-rods normally associated with this genre; one for stop-start and the other for changing tunes. The dome is a plastic replacement, with a few cracks and a small missing section at the rear, but overall presenting a nice appearance. When activated the birds “chirp” by virtue of a mechanical device inside (this is not a bellows movement). Two of the birds are animated, one at the glass-rod “waterfall” (drinking) and the other yellow bird flapping his wings. Everything has been professionally serviced and working fine.
