Singing Bird Box

Fine French shell singing bird box attributed to Bontems, circa 1890. Beautifully engraved silver cover. This box has just been fully serviced.

When the slide is activated the lid opens, the colorful feathered bird pops up and moves from side to side moving its beak, wings and tail in time with the lovely chirps produced by the internal bellows and tuned pipe. Then the bird drops back into the box and the lid closes automatically.
