East German Wood Music Box - Swiss Thorens Musical Movement


Shipping to United States: $15.69

This wooden musical toy features Snow White and the Seven Dwarves gathered around their wooden cabin with the dwarves presenting Snow White with the gift of a bouquet of flowers.

Original paper sticker on the bottom marked Made in Germany East, and label on the box marks the movement within the music box as Swiss by Thorens with the tune being played, O du Froliche.

Turn the key on the bottom, set the piece down, then pull the wooden dowel from the side slightly outward to start the music, and watch the piece spin slowly as it plays it's tune. Push the dowel back in to stop the music and movement. In excellent condition for a piece that's nearly 70 years old with only very minor wear to the paint and no dirt or dust present. Does not open, is not actually a music box but rather a musical toy or decoration.

This piece is judged as being from the 1950's due to the labelling, condition, and style of the decoration on the original box.
