Antique silver singing bird box made in Germany by Karl Griesbaum

Antique silver singing bird box with a silver case made in Germany by Karl Griesbaum dated at 1920. The elegant rectangular box has a rich hand engraved decoration with c- scrolls, flowers and birds. It is hallmarked and has the maker´s mark. When not singing the little hand feathered multi coloured bird is concealed under a round gold plated lid. It is activated by a lever in form of a bird on the right side, whereupon the lid opens and the bird emerges to sing and flutter about.The lid snaps shut when the bird is done singing. The box is in perfect working and singing condition, having been controlled and recently serviced by a professional restorer. The silver case is in perfect condition and is a special custom piece made by Karl Griesbaum. This is a superb example of a high quality antique bird box.
