Vintage Wendt & Kuhn Music Box - 5 angels spinning to "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht"
This vintage music box has 5 angel musicians sitting on crescent moons suspended from a center spindle that turns around as Silent Night plays. There are also 5 suspended bells. The music box was made by Wendt & Kuhn. There is some discoloration to the brass colored ring, some crazing in the clear finish coat over the paint. Please see the photographs for condition of the angels.There is an on/off switch on the side. Measurements. Height = 10", Diameter (ring) = 5.5", Diameter (globe) = 4.5", Diameter (base) = 3.25". The item's weight is 1 pound 2 ounces.
I believe this music box is over 50 years old and shows wear. An elderly aunt purchased it in Germany probably in the late 40s or early 50s. Please examine the photos closely to see the missing parts and items that need repair. One of the wires holding the angels is missing. As you can see in the video, the music plays and the angels rotate.
