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 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. This singing bird box was hand crafted by Charles Bruguier in the 1830s and is numbered 246. This is one of the nicest playing singing and animating fusee wind bird boxes you will ever see and the bird is exceptionally colorful and also in outstanding cosmetic condition. The case is gold gilt solid sterling silver with exceptional quality engravings on the bottom case piece. This piece was originally restored in 1891 by famous watchmaker Piguet and at that time, the top case and lid were also replaced. One can only imagine what major European conflict caused this piece to lose its top pieces. The mechanical movement is absolutely flawless and the bird animates and sings without any apologies; notice how well the bird’s beak opens/closes, head turns, wings flap and tail flutters. 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.

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.

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.

Full item description text is below the video. The video may not play on all mobile apps. 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. 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”.

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.
