PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Exquisite miniature enamelled box evocative of the work of Frères Rochat who created fantastical singing bird boxes in the early 19th century. Mechanical singing bird boxes featured in the decorative arts of the 18th and 19th centuries. Originating in the city of Geneva, their invention is attributed to expert watchmaker Pierre Jaquet-Droz (1721-90). Automaton and miniature combine in these contrivances, many of which were finely crafted, complex and intricate. Such charming curios have a timeless appeal and our keepsake trinket box featuring a romantic pair of Victorian love birds celebrates whimsicality.

This item wasn't as nice as other trinket pots I have bought in the past. I was glad it was a sale item

Very nice little box. Not on a par with the little enamel bird and animal ornaments you sell but still very nice.
