MU 214 214 00 - Enamel and Gold Bird Box

4 ” x 2″ x 3″

This gold and enamel box is packed with a mechanism which animates a tiny, sparkling bird. Tiny bellows push air through an automated slide whistle and produce the complex little tune. After singing, the bird disappears back inside the box.

These pieces are truly fascinating. The birds are finished in exquisite detail. Housed inside the base is a tiny mechanism with bellows and a multi-pitch whistle that plays a tune on demand. It is made by hand in Germany and is completely mechanical without any use of speakers or electronics. These are mechanical-musical instruments.

The birds’ heads move back and forth, the beaks open, and the wings flap.

The melody is intricate, complete with vibrato, melismatic lines, and precise articulation.
