Issued in 1896, this machine could be sold with a simple resonator very similar than the one used with the Jumeau doll, or with a horn & reproducer as below in 1897.  A transparent rhodoid funnel was used to amplify the sounds (the broken original is in the lid).   The clock-maker origin of Lioret cannot be forgotten when one sees the design of the mechanism.
