When the music is playing, the entire platform with the angels and Maria rotates. The musical movement is a swiss THORENS movement.
The sound is bright and clear and it plays very well: "Silent Night". To wind it up, just turn the key clockwise.There is a starter on the side, too: Lift up the lever and the music starts playing. The music box is not complete: 3 angels are missing their wings and 2 their instrument and note sheet. The paint is in very good condition, though and it displays nicely. Please look at all pictures and zoom in. Dates to the late 1940s and is marked with the Thorens.
It measures 9" tall and 5" wide. Comes from a clean and smoke free home. Please ask, if you have any questions about this item!
