I have recently found a German Bird in a Cage Music box. Brass cage, bird on a branch of leaves (I think they are silk), signed on the bottom UKA Germany. It works perfectly. The bird sings, and moves from side to side, beak moves, tail moves etc. I was wondering if anyone can direct me to a guide on these so that I might find out the circa and an approx current value
