This Eschle German gilt filagree singing mechanical bird box has a small bird perched on a swing hanging from the top of the inside of the cage. It has a slide out drawer for key storage. When you wind it, and moves the slide bar to the right, the lid rises and the bird pops up and begins to tweet a song. He flaps his wings and moves his beak. The bird's singing is beautiful. While the singing bird sings, the bird on the swing is swinging back and forth. I have not seen another one like this, with the overhead bird on a swing. It is a very lovely piece.
