This large German carousel music box is sure to have appealed to boys and girls alike. Patterned paper covers the base, with a canopy of silk and lace, and four large glass balls hanging above. The children are of hand painted papier-mache sitting atop horses of papier-mache over metal. Center turned wooden post is painted red with Dresden trim. The music box plays a song typically heard on the carousels at amusement parks, clear and strong, when the porcelain crank is turned.
