Singing Bird Box By Charles Bruguier

A singing bird box is a box, usually rectangular-shaped, which contains within a miniature automaton singing bird concealed below an oval lid and activated by means of an operating lever. One of the great master mechanicians in the crafting of bird boxes was Charles Abraham Bruguier from Switzerland.

Among his contributions are the improvements in the sound and the extension of the bird's performance.
