Bird Box number “.7” : an Update

Well little Pan was sent off to Bonhams yesterday. Unfortunately, he still wasn’t quite finished. Previous restoration work rendered the bellows ineffective when the mechanism is placed in the case. I raised the mechanism up a bit by adding little leather washers. Pressure from the lid on the mechanism now makes Pan run slow. I plan to resolve this issue, if given more time. Here is a video of how he sounds when not in the case, paired with video of him performing in the case. I look forward to our next encounter.
