Video will open in a new window. One of many authentic antique singing bird boxes offered for sale – please look at my other listings too. Offered for sale is an antique singing bird box crafted in the late 1800s/very early 1900s. This was crafted by OMM/Raymy of Geneva Switzerland and bears their rather peculiar rear mounted governor fan movement. The bird song is slightly different than most so that is a nice bonus. The bird animates and sings perfectly and the case is very nice. This is a rather modestly priced antique singing bird box and is 100% genuine so if you have always wanted a true antique singing bird box at a modest price, this example is perfect. I fully serviced (cleaned, adjusted, lubricated) the mechanical movement so this singing bird box operates perfectly. Buyers should be cautious when purchasing an antique singing bird box – always insist on seeing a photo of the mechanical movement for any singing bird box described as “antique”. This significantly impacts both current value and future value appreciation. The bird animates perfectly as follows: wings flap up/down, beak opens/closes, tail flutters up/down all the while singing to a beautiful oscillating bird song that is synchronized to the bird animation.

This is an Antique / Vintage 1935 Art Deco Shyvers Multiphone Jukebox Table Top Music Selector. Measures 18 inches tall… 1414 on the top… Colored Glass Jewel Lights in Good Condition… A very beautiful Art Deco design and a very unique device. The Shyvers Multiphone, released in 1935 by Kenneth C. Shyvers, was an interesting idea as a coin-operated phonograph (also known as a jukebox). It allowed patrons at restaurants, cafes and bars to play music at their table, and worked through telephone lines. This unit has no self contained music. The user inserted the necessary amount of coins, and was connected to a team of all-female disc jockeys in Seattle, who manually put on the selected song on a phonograph, playing the music through the telephone connection. Included with this example is a photograph of the lady DJs , instructions , a Shyvers Spinner Token , and key to the lock. (lock barrel is out in the photos but I have complete lock) Definitely one of the most attractive jukebox items ever made… The item “Antique Vintage Art Deco Shyvers Multiphone Jukebox Table Top Music Selector” is in sale since Saturday, December 14, 2019.
