A lovely penny in the slot double singing birds in cage, the brass cage contains two birds with mustard yellow, dark green, black and grey feathered plumage, natural beaks and black glass eyes with a gilt metal slot for you to insert your 1d, allowing the birds to sing their song whilst taking turns to open and close their beaks, bob tailfeathers and turn heads from side to side.

RICHARD GARDNER ANTIQUES HOME OF THE WEBSITEHello,

I have just changed over a few items on display in the Emsworth showroom and you can now see a lovely serpentine chest of drawers, together with a new longcase clock. I have also changed some of the pictures on display, so have a look in the window if passing.

Don’t forget, the ban on the sale of ivory coming into force we expect at the end of the year. Read my blog here

I am continuing to locate some of the finest antiques to offer you and have recently added more chess sets, a collection of woolwork pictures and I am hoping to see a selection of singing bird boxes shortly.

Please remember that the Emsworth showroom is normally only open by appointment at the moment, so please contact me if you wish to view anything there.
