The musical movement is a Swiss Thorens movement. The sound is bright and clear and it is playing the : "Komm' lieber Mai Und Mai und mach' die Baeume wieder gruen" A lovely typical German Spring tune. There is a working stopper on the side. While the music is playing, the platform with the children rotates around the stationary tree. The music box is in great condition for it's age. It dates back to the 1970's.
