MASSIVE REUGE TRIPLE SINGING BIRD CAGE USING THE BONTEMS STYLE MECHANICAL MOVEMENT. REUGE ACQUIRED BONTEMS IN 1960. JUST FULLY SERVICED AND WORKING PERFECTLY. This was one of Reuge's "special creation pieces" and was limited to only nine pieces, this is number eight of nine. The birds are larger and more lifelike than a normal Reuge singing bird cage and the middle bird is much larger.
The entire case is wood, very fancy and finished with a floral scene. The mechanical movement has true leather covered wooden bellows and I just serviced the movement so everything works extremely well. This is a giant piece that is sure to catch people's eye from across the room. It measures approximately two feet tall, 16.5 inches long and 9.5 inches deep. The 8 day clock chimes on the half hour (one chime) and then each hour to the corresponding hour.
This was designed for the birds to alternate singing with a pause between the singing. OVERALL EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH MINIMAL PATINA AND WITH PERFECT SINGING AND ANIMATION. Video will open in a new window.
