Yet, it is what is inside this mechanical work of art that truly makes it enchanting. Hundreds of screws, wheels and levers are hidden within to form an exceedingly advanced complex movement. With the simple press of a button, the cover lifts and a miniature bird covered with colorful feathers is revealed. As the mechanism unwinds, the bird appears to sing a tune, while moving his beak and flapping his wings in a remarkably natural movement. When the birdsong is complete, the tiny creature simply slips back into the box and the lid automatically closes behind it. As mechanically complex as it is beautiful, this box is a truly enchanting musical antique.
