Item Details

Information:



A cheerful little timepiece automata.

Probably Japanese, late c20th.

A feathered bird within his cage, he rocks from side to side as the clock ticks:

The central sphere, which bears a time scale around its equator, rotates fully once every 12 hours. The time is given by referring the fixed red hand to the sphere.

Beneath the clock is a fixed winding key and a sphere setting knob.

A smart little novelty.
