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 hummingbird 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.

Antique Nicole Freres Fat Cylinder Key Wind Music Box. This is a Nicole Freres antique Swiss cylinder music box with a fat cylinder. It is in playing condition but could probably be gone through, cleaned and could use a little damper work. The comb which is stamped Nicole Freres is good with the exception of two treble tips, and the tip of the lowest bass note need to be replaced. It has a very sweet a mellow sound that Nicole Freres is known for. The brass bedplate is stamped Nicole Freres A Geneve and the number 25985 the side of the cylinder is also stamped with 25985. It probably dates from the late 1840s to early 1850s. There is also a brass tag tacked to the back inside wall of the box with the distributor name F. HAUSBURG LIVERPOOL Unfortunately the program card is missing so I do not know any of the tunes. As near as I can tell the diameter of the cylinder is 3 inches and 9.25 inches long. It has its original drop down side control panel door, with its original hook clasp. This music box has 3 controls, one for change / repeat of the tune, the center is for play / stop control (stops at the end of the tune), and the 3 is an instant stop. Included is its original cast key. The bottom of the box also looks to be stenciled or written 25985. The cabinet has its original finish, which clearly has wear particularly to one bottom, front foot area. The top has some nice inlay of a dove and floral work / framing. The inlay looks to be mostly in very good shape. All that I noticed is that some of the stringing. The top does have a slight warp to it, as seen on many music boxes. There is a lock present in the cabinet, but I do not have a key for it and it looks like the little knuckle that it would latch into is missing from the top plate. While it could use a little work, all in all this has the potential to be an outstanding music box. August 28, 2017 – YouTube. Video will open in a new window.
