Fine vintage Charles Reuge “Dawn Chorus” burr walnut signing bird automaton box with its original box, recently serviced by Reuge.

Concealed inside is a miniature bird, covered with colorful hummingbird feathers. When the lid is opened, the bird appears to sing a lovely tune, while moving his beak and flapping his wings. When the birdsong is complete, the tiny creature simply slips back into the box and the lid closes behind it.  The box is recently serviced by famous REUGE (Swiss luxury music boxes manufacture). Service papers are included.

Movement composed of 250 mechanical pieces, assembled by hand in Reuge workshops in Sainte-Croix, Switzerland. Real bird feathers.

A truly remarkable work of art and decorative collectible!
