3.25 x 1.5 (high) x 3.25inch

No. 41 (?) Two children, BOTH under an umbrella

Description ot the Ebay-Seller: A lovely Victorian Manivelle child's music box from possibly the late 1800's. Cylindrical metal body, label on the bottom is very worn but shows the alphabet around the outer rim and in the center it seems to be 3 children and/ or possibly a teacher playing instruments; the "teacher" is playing piano behind the two children, a boy playing a flute (?) and a girl playing a cello, with a mandolin off to the side. On the front a charming lithographed pictorial paper illustration showing two children a boy holding a parasol for a little girl that is holding a basket full of flowers.
Approximately 2.5" in diameter

Good condition, shows some signs of rust and tarnish, the bottom edge has some small dents, the top lithograph picture has staining, the bottom label/ picture is torn, worn and browning, it somewhat works when it turns but not smoothly, the porcelain handle/ knob for the crank is chipped on the bottom, its in pretty decent shape being from the 1800's and a child's toy. Overall wear and discoloration due to age and use.
