The case features a blue and white soft enamel finish with lapis lazuli effect cabochons on each corner. The trim is gold gilt. Overall cosmetic is very good and the mechanical condition is excellent.
The case shows very minor signs of aging/patina upon close inspection but nothing that detracts from the overall beauty of this piece. Comes with the original Reuge presentation case. In summary, this is an early example of one of Reuge's most desirable vintage singing bird box designs. I fully serviced (cleaned, adjusted, lubricated) the mechanical movement so this singing bird box operates perfectly.The bird animates perfectly as follows: wings flap up/down, beak opens/closes, tail flutters up/down, bird turns left/right all the while singing to a beautiful oscillating bird song that is synchronized to the bird animation.
