Karl Griesbaum

Karl Griesbaum (1872-1941) was founded in 1905 and originally produced clock parts but soon went onto specialise in the production of singing bird boxes. Gresbaum were the dominant producer of singing bird boxes in the 20th century until they closed in 1988. Each Griesbaum box featured only one song and one movement which was offered in three build qualities. The firm offered 30 different case styles and often the movement was often a secondary consideration to the decoration.
