Magnificent Antique 19thC Rare German Solid Silver Singing Bird Cage C.Breathtaking solid silver bird singing cage wind the cage up from the bottom and the bird will start to move and sing once bird stops there is a little pole on side which you pull out words and bird starts to sing more once bird stops you have to wind up again from the bottom never wind up to much as its bad for the automaton part. The cage is solid silver 925 purity and fully hallmarked to base with makers mark also, comes with key. The cage can be hung as it has a loop at top but I would not recommend this as the cage is antique old and might not take the weight it displays beautifully and works fine. I would class the piece as rare as they usually come in the form of a box I have seen bird cages but not in solid silver. Carved art work to centre below birds also art all around the box truly beautiful, you have one bird at top perching on swing which is just for show bird to bottom placed on the pole is the automaton one which moves left to right and sings , horse show feet at base and carved Figure to top below loop. Length 10.6cm to foot. Width 8.7cm to Foot.
