Antique Karl Griesbaum Carved Automaton Whistler Music Box Lamp w/Key Works NiceGreetings.. I just don't think in todays society we have the patients to make such incredible things as this. The carving and condition is excellent. As he whistles he turns his head to right and center (I've tried to show in the first four photo's). Has the original 'bird' key and also is a lamp, although very tempormental. The batteries have to be positioned just right to work properly. Measures approx 20" high to very top of the lamp finial, small dent to top of shade (photo). Marked KEN-D and K G GERMANY on reverse.
