Video will open in a new window. One of the prettiest and most desirable vintage Reuge singing bird box case styles. The case is beautiful with a soft enamel, lapis lazuli effect finish and further adorned with gold gilt, chased trim pieces.
The original bird is highly colorful with iridescent red, pink, green and blue tones. With any vintage piece, the case naturally shows very minor signs of patina.Overall, this 60 year old singing bird box is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition. 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.
