Made By Blaise Bontems was the founder of this firm whose specialty was the creation of mechanical singing birds.. Signed Made in France. He started out as a modest apprentice clock maker .. and was given a snuffbox to repair .. It contained a bird whistling and it fascinated him, and he found himself regretting that the bird did not sing naturally like its fellow of flesh and blood..He decided to modify the mechanism accordingly. It was the first of its kind and the singing bird was born. To find three Birds in a gilded gold cage is very unique. Most have one or two, but never three! They all sing and move! The Gilding has some Paint loss. See Pictures for more detail.. Very Unique for Your Collection! I feel it would be the highlight of any collection.
