|This rare 1955 (marked on bellows) Eschle (stamped on movement) singing bird box automaton is in excellent working condition. This all brass Eschle movement is original. The box has lost some of its black enamel though not on the lid. Eschle was a German company who made singing birds and was more known for the less expensive tourist versions of the 70-80s. This much more rare 1955 movement demonstrates clearly the initial focus on quality to match or exceed Griesbaum before Eschle sought the mass market. A collectors item.
