About

Mechanical birdcage with two singing birds inside. This automaton has a red and yellow singing bird in the cage. As well the birds as the plants are very fine detailed. The birds in this singing bird music box have realistic sound of real singing and talking birds. If you wouldn't see this birdcage, you would think there are birds flying in your house. They look natural with the real feathers and the same movements as a real bird. While a bird is talking, you can see that the nozzle goes open en closed while also the tale is going up and down. The red bird turns also left and right. When the red bird stops talking, the yellow one goes further in the conversation. His nozzle and tale also moves. He does not turn, but stays in the same position. They are talking and singing to each other. The cage of this miniature singing bird box is made of brass, which has little wear of age, but is still in very beautiful condition and most important, the music box is in working condition. Under the birdcage you can see a label: Hasu, made in Germany The dimensions given for the height is without the ring on top. In the style of Karl Griesbaum, Bontems Singing Birds and Reuge.
