When wound and the start/stop button slid smartly to the right, the engraved gilt-metal lid opens as the bird suddenly appears, opening and closing beak, flapping both wings, bobbing tail feather and turning whole body from side-to-side, perfectly synchronised to the continuous birdsong, ending when bird disappears and lid closes. The lid surmount of finely chased and polished gilt metal maidens, each posed side-on and flanking the oval bird lid with engraved border, plain bar-lozenge start/stop button to front-right and plain polished underside completing this superb Bontems singing bird box.
