This cute little birdcage has a lot of little surprises. It's a little clock, showing the beautiful inner workings of a master time piece. The little bird moves from side to side as the seconds tick over, and the time is told by a sphere positioned in the middle. Even though it is not vintage I fell in love with it's quirkiness. It has a comforting melodic tick tock and I spent a lot of time just looking through the glass underneath and watched the cogs turn in perfect harmony. Something well made and timeless. Literally.
