Bird of Paradise

This is the Bird of Paradise. Like Swoopy, she has a nearly silent Grasshopper escapement and her "bird" is in constant motion as she runs. Her frame floats just beyond the wall allowing her pendulum space to swing freely side to side. She has a floral motif running throughout her design, and the escape wheel that protrudes out the front of the frame keeps all the motion well within view.
