Karl Griesbaum ? Music Box, 2 Animated Singing Birds In A Brass Cage:
Ok, so my pictures suck compared to a lot of these listings, but I can send more or videos of the birds in motion...
This is assumed to be a Karl Griesbaum piece, as it's almost identical to the ones listed, but I think you would have to remove the bottom to see the markings on the internals to be sure. Two animated birds, red on the high perch & yellow below, both work perfectly. Unlike most of the KG cages listed, this one is stamped with Germany instead of West Germany, so I'm not sure if that makes it older or newer. Dusty & the brass has a few spots... would sell for more if it were polished up, but I don't have the patience to do it correctly!
This belonged to my wife's late mother-in-law who came to the states from Germany in the 1950s... not sure if she brought it with her or bought it after she got here. Thanks for looking and good luck!! Eric
