Rare Les Freres Rochat gold and mother of pearl singing bird jewel box to go under the hammer


I love collecting watches, although nothing I have would be considered rare. And if you are sailing in the same boat and wish for something more precious to add to your collection, then head to Hong Kong, where Antiquorum Auctioneers is putting up a sale of “Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces.” Headlining the auction is a Les Freres Rochat gold and mother of pearl singing bird jewel box, which was once owned by Empress Josephine. Estimated to fetch $200,000 -$300,000 and dated to the 1800s, the rare gold and mother-of-pearl table jewel box feature a singing bird with musical movements.
