Listing for:

Here is the original crank and horse race scene.

 

Manivelles are Swiss hand-cranked music boxes that were popular during the Victorian era. Most were fragile and decorated with paper prints that rarely survived the ravages of time. This is a two-tune music box playing "Old Hundred" and "Tramp! Tramp!" and decorated with a scene including a monkey organ and grinder on one side and a horse race on the other! Generally these sell in the $200 range, here offered at a strong discount for our customers.
