He sings, turns from left to right, flaps his wings and opens and shuts his beak. After a few seconds he finishes his performance, disapears down throught he grille and the lid closes after him ready for his next performance. The box has German silver marks and is also marked on the base with the little known "Lighthouse" mark. German circa 1920. 4 inches wide by 2.5 inches deep by 2 inches high ( 10 cms by 6.25 cms by 5 cms).
