This beautifully detailed music box was made in the Erzgebirge region in the former East Germany by the famous company "Wendt & Kuhn". When the music is playing, the inner pole with the birds is rotating.
The musical movement is a swiss THORENS movement. The sound is bright and clear and it plays very well: "Taler, Taler du musst wandern". To wind it up, just turn the key on the side clockwise. There is a working stopper on the side, too.
The music box is in great condition, but not complete: there is the middle bird on the pole missing and another one hanging from it, one wing is shorter. Also a couple leaves broke off.
There are a few paint chips on the rim of the base to mention. Otherwise it is super nice, the paint is still bright and shiny!
