This magnificent Swiss gilt silver singing bird box exhibits artistic beauty and mechanical skill of the highest order. When a key is turned, this medallion opens and a brightly feathered bird rises from beneath a gold oval opening to chirp a lovely tune while moving his beak and flapping its wings. When the birdsong is complete, the tiny creature simply slips back into the box and the lid automatically closes behind it. Delightful bird boxes, or tabatières, such as this were originally collected by royalty and wealthy noblemen in the 18th century, and are today highly sought after by collectors. A painstaking and costly process is required to create just one of these elaborately ornamented treasures, and each piece is wonderfully unique.
