Music Box Lighthouse w/Flying Seagulls Under Glass

Quantity available: 1

Offering this beautiful vintage mechanical music box made of hardwood at the base, and the lighthouse seen is under a glass dome. The sea gulls circle in the sky as the music plays.  (Two of them are attached to moving wires), works fine.  Very nice miter joints in the six corners of the box base.  The glass dome is well secured and is not removable as far as I can tell.  It measures 4.5 x 4.5 x 10 inches tall and sets on four black color feet. There is a label on the underside, label reads "OLD TOWNE ROSCOE VILLAGE COSHOCTON OHIO SPECIALIZING IN MUSIC BOXES" but the tune is not named on the label. This music box is in good++ condition, no cracks or chips; one grain separation noted near one of the miter joints on the base, the glass has a few minor manufacturing flaws, but otherwise it has a nice finish overall.  We are not sure of the tune it plays, and we do notice one note at the end of the song (when the movement restarts the song) seems a little flat, but otherwise the song plays very good.  I suppose the movement is a made in Japan type, but no way to see it on this model.  There is a lever switch on one side of the base to stop the music movement if you wish. The tune is an older tune, favorite.  If you want to hear it, please email us, and we will give you a phone number to call us, or if you give us you phone number we can call you.  A lovely music box for your collection or a wonderful gift!
