Condition Report For Lot# 1045:
This animated novelty is in very good original condition. The bird retains his feathers in good colorful condition, and he sings his song crisply, all the while fluttering his wings and opening his beak. The cast brass box, in old patina, has a fine filigree pattern on all surfaces of the outside, including the lid, with just a few small dents and nicks. Includes cute bird-form winding key. Closed box, stamped "Made in Germany" on the bottom, measures 2.5 x 4 x 1.75 inches high
Estimate: $800 - $1000
