    Vintage mechanical bird cage with two birds; one bird with yellow and black feathers and the other one - with red and black feathers. Bright gold finish with red stones inserted.

      Movement is started with a key in the base of the cage and triggered by  a lever on the stand left side. While singing the birds open their beaks, turn their heads and move tails.
