Magnificent German Automaton with Two Birds in a Cage
We have offered here a magnificent German Automaton with Two Birds in a Cage. This one has a Red Bird, and a second which is Yellow and Blue. They both open and close the Beak, and wag their Tails, while the Red Bird also turns his head back and forth. Both birds sing in turn, and this one works beautifully. The feathers of both birds are a little discolored, but still show fairly bright colors. I have also cleaned the worst of the dirt from them. The cage on this one is 6 1/2" across and stands 11" tall, and is also in good condition with a wonderful patina. Although not marked, it reminds me of the Karl Greisbaum Automatons from the early 1900's in Germany. A fabulous working example of these fun machines.
