Erzgebirge Music Box East Germany Garden Work
This is a very nice rarely seen all wood music box with rotating flying birds. It is marked "EXPERTIC MADE IN GERMANY EAST" on the bottom (appears to be a sticker). The little girls in the garden are hand carved but some other items like the birds may be molded. The flying birds bodies are all intact, but one is missing most of one wing, and one other is missing both wings. The whole exterior appears to be hand painted! Other than the missing wings and one pigtail, this music box is in great shape. It is 7" tall. The music is a Thorens, the tune is unknown, but plays well and has a brass pull on the side to turn on or off, which is right next to the winging key.
