Clock of the week – Singing Bird Birdbox In A Silver Gilt Box By Bontems C1930

An exquisite singing bird box by Bontems c1930. 
This singing bird has been housed in a lovely silver box in the shape of a caddy with unusual “claw” feet. the majority of these boxes that I have come across have been a simple square box with flat bottom, the curved sides decorated with numerous Putti. the base is engine turned and the top having a diamond shape pattern along with the decorated door. The original “bird” shape key is present. 
The silver gilt mask which is visible when opened is in a lovely original condition and gleams in the sunlight with moved.
The brass movement has been fully overhauled my me personally and the original bellows are in a very good condition. The bird moves swiftly and sharply as intended by the manufacturer and the song is crisp and clear
