It is an unique work of art, hand crafted from wood and hand painted. It features 2 girls being busy with gardening work. They are surrounded by flowers and birds.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 complete: the only visible flaw is a paint chip to the girl's brown hair. Otherwise a repair to one of the centre bird's wings and a tiny paint chip on the pole and base rim, but these are hardly recognizable. Dates to the early 1980s and is marked with the white and. It measures about 8" tall and 5" wide.
