For your consideration is this lovely vintage Music Box from Germany. It is an unique work of art, hand crafted from wood and hand painted. It features a couple of children walking around a big tree, a "Kinderreigen". 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 platform with the children is rotating. The musical movement is a swiss THORENS movement.The sound is bright and clear and it plays very well: "Komm lieber Mai und mach die Baeume wieder gruen". 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 and almost complete: only the blue bird on top is missing its tail.
The paint is chipping off in multiple spots, though. This is unfortunate, but the figurines are complete and look really nice otherwise.Please look at all pictures and zoom in. It measures about 10" tall and 6" wide. Comes from a clean and smoke free home. Please ask, if you have any questions about this item!
