Late 20th Century Swiss Reuge Automaton Brass Cage with Two Singing Birds
Bring life to your house with this colorful vintage birdcage. Crafted by Reuge Music in Switzerland circa 1980, the cage is cylindrical in shape and topped with a rounded dome. Inside the gilded cage, there are two miniature automaton birds. The birds are realistic with their life-like colors and feathered texture. One bird sits on the ground, the other on a branch. When you activate the on-off switch and wind the key at the bottom, both birds tweet in harmony, and move their heads, beaks and tails in synchronicity. The cage has a decorative top ring that can be used for easy hanging. The piece is in excellent condition and has a richly patinated brass finish throughout.
