Aus der Beschreibung von Breker: According to Mayson, Charles Bruguier and his family returned from London to Geneva in 1823 and shortly afterwards began the production of singing bird boxes. Though Brugnier was not principally known for cylinder musical movements, Mayson's dating suggests that the example here is from the earliest days of production.
