A singing bird box (boîte à oiseau chanteur in French) is a box, usually rectangular-shaped, which contains within a miniature automaton singing bird concealed below an oval lid and activated by means of an operating lever. Its origins are found in the city of Geneva and its invention in 1784/85 is attributed to Pierre Jaquet-Droz.
INCOLAY products vary from reproductions of classic antiques to modern day artist renderings. We produce "trinket" boxes, as well as "treasure" boxes. Many function as jewelry boxes and men's valets. Our hope is to re-introduce our music boxes in the very near future. Most of our wall decor, mirrors and clocks are reproductions of antiques as well.
