Rare(karl Griesbaum ?)large German~automaton~whistler~ole King Cole~music Box For Sale

You are offerding on this Extraordinary Beautiful Hand Carved Wood German Automaton Whistler from the early 1900's. This is a much Rarer version than the usual drunk leaning on a light post that you normally see, He is "Ole King Cole", and he stands 15 1/2inches tall. I have seen a few of these signed by Karl Griesbaum, but the only markings I can find on this one are Germany & Made in Germany. Ole King Cole comes complete with his original bird shaped keythat hangs from a chain around his neck, and the clock work mechanism works like a top-causing Ole King Coles head to turn from side to side and pumping the bellows up and down...unfortuneately the bellows has a small tear so the Ole King is silent for now. Repairing the bellows should be a relatively easy repair though. The Ole king has a small nick on one of the points on his crown and a small piece of wood chipped off of the clock-work cover (butI have the piece), other than that he is in great original condition.This is truly a Wonderful piece that only comes along once in a lifetime, he will enhance anyones vintage collection!! Please email me with any questions. Payment is due in 7 days.
