1770 French Bird organ at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - From the curators' comments: "Bird organs were used to teach caged birds to sing different tunes. The user would wind a handle, which pumped the bellows in a wind-box and simultaneously rotated a cylinder, used to control the air-supply to individual organ-pipes and thus produce different tunes. Different types of bird organ were used in France.  This example is a serinette, which copied the sound of finches."

I like the patterns for a pillow, skirt or quilt... Something whimsical! Imperial Rose Trellis Musical Egg

Imperial Rose Trellis Musical Egg - Whimsy and elegance combined, hand-painted Limoges porcelain Faberge egg. The "surprise" inside this egg is a colorful carousel that revolves as the Swiss-made musical movement plays "Carousel Waltz".
