My favourite one is this from 1773. I watched a programme about it & was fascinated. Hope my link works as I've never done it this way before...........& I am blonde.

Well the linky bit in the middle worked   :thumbup:

And with that one Laz, you're entering the realms of automata, and in that area, that one (The silver swan) is probably the crem de la crem of the lot.
The ingenuity of using those rotating glass bars to look like water is truly outstanding.
Its a stunningly beautiful thing.

Don't think you'll be picking anything like that up at your local boot sale

The swan is lovely, although I think they could have put some nice music to it  :wonder:

One modern take on the old music box is this ... My electro-mechanical "SyphonyOf Bells"
It's no antique :no2: But it rattles along quite nicely I think :yes:

Nearly bought one of these a few years ago from one of those shopping channels. A Mr Christmas one with the carousel, there was also a train one that I liked. Would still love to own one now actually.
