Description
Singing bird automaton - Brass, Feathers, Steel - Second half 20th century

A beautiful bird automaton. The bird is softly singing a melody, which can be listened to on YouTube (I've filmed this exact automaton on YouTube, "Vintage bird automaton for Catawiki (February 2018)"). The bird sometimes continues singing when the handle is pushed to stop.
