Lot 0026
Created by Lucien Bontemps in Paris circa 1870, this is among his largest and most spectacular “singing bird” clockwork automatons. Inside the beautifully gilded and decorated 22 inch tall cage, three colorful birds move, chirp and sing in unison. The birds are exquisitely decorated with real feathers and appear truly lifelike in their actions and sounds. In excellent working and cosmetic condition. Extremely rare.
