Karl Griesbaum Music Box Carved Wood Windup Accordian Player Whistler Automaton For Sale
1966 AIRFIX CRAFT MASTER MODEL KIT JAMES BOND SECRET AGENT 007 ASTON-MARTIN DB-5
VINTAGE KARL GRIESBAUM KG GERMANY CARVED WOOD WINDUP ACCORDIAN PLAYER WHISTLER AUTOMATON MUSIC BOXWITH HANG TAG.The whistling and head motion movementsWORK! No original key; I have included one of my keys so you can operate it. Wind it up a little,move/jingle that adjacent handle a little, and the musician moves his head from side to side as he makes a whistling sound. Please note so you are not disappointed, his mouth does NOT move nor does the accordian move/play-they are NOT made to do so-Isimply don't want any misunderstanding. Note that the operating lever is not a precise on/off movement; you have to jingle/ manipulate it a little to get it to work. At the base is a battery compartment that operates the light in the lamp. I could NOT get that function to work-no idea why. That lamp appears slighly off center/ perhaps bent/off-kilter.Total height from ground to top of lamp finial is roughly 19 inches; the figure alone measures roughly 13 1/2 inches from bottom of feet to top of hat. Piece has minimal wear and has minor wood loss adjacent to the "finger" pry orifices adjacent to the covers, one on the back (keywind mechanism)and one on the bottom (battery cover). A little dusty. Absolutely phenomenal piece.
