Antique automaton singing bird cage music box. Made in France by Bontems, circa 1900. Engraved “Made in France” on the base plate, but does not have a serial number. The number 132 is engraved on the edge of the brass base. The bird has a yellow breast and red back to the tail feathers. 11 1/2″ high x 6″ diameter at base. Not Working – offered for parts or repair. I had a local clock shop look at this and they said it needs a bellows. One of the has been replaced with a non-matching part. It also needs some repair on the feathers, a good cleaning and possibly a replacement of the carpet. Check out my other items. Updated 8/16/17 with photos of mechanism and number 132 engraved on base ring. While I had it open for the pictures, I wound the mechanism and it appears to be running just fine.

VERY RARE TO FIND A 100% ORIGINAL ANTIQUE EXAMPLE. THIS IS THE MASSIVE TWO FOOT TALL MODEL IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND WAS CRAFTED IN THE LATE 1800’s. Conserving means keeping the piece original and diligently cleaning the piece instead of re-feathering the birds, replacing the fabric cage floor, foliage, etc. This is a rare find. Look at the beautiful iridescent violet/purple feathers on the larger bird. I just serviced the mechanical movement and the birds sing with full voice, hitting all of the wonderful oscillating bird song notes and animate perfectly. The bird song is incredibly lifelike on the large scale models. The movement has clearly been properly maintained/serviced throughout the past 120 years and the wooden bellows would have been recovered with leather at some point in time. On a full wind, this will play for approximately two minutes, thirty seconds. The original bird feathers still retain vibrant color and iridescent effects. These are true taxidermy birds (with real bird beaks and legs/feet) that are wrapped around a brass bird exoskeleton. This cage measures 22 inches tall including the ring, 18 inches otherwise and has a diameter of 11 inches. I included a photo with a normal size antique singing bird cage for scaling purposes; the normal size bird cage is not for sale/part of this listing. I made two videos, one showing the finished piece and another showing the internal mechanics. In summary, this is a wonderful example and rare 100% original condition. I did replace the three rubber cushions on the wood base bottom as the originals were dried out and no longer provided protection for whatever this cage will rest on – I will include the originals in a small bag. HEAR IT PLAY (two videos – one of the finished automaton and a second showing how the internal mechanics work). PLEASE EXPLORE MY OTHER LISTINGS. CONSULTATIONS ARE FREE AS I ENJOY SHARING WHAT I KNOW. Troy Duncan, CPA, retired.
