Condition Report For Lot# 856 :
the ornate highly carved case is in very nice original condition with no apparent losses. The fancy bone hands are fine, as is the large articulated painted wood bird. The three bellows tops are newer. The pendulum stick has been repaired and is a bit short. The movement ticks and strikes correctly, but was not tested long term. An English-language instruction paper is on the rear door, along with a better-quality gong.
