1st half 20th century wood in very nice condition

Nice, well functioning whistling wanderer by Karl Griesbaum. Precise age is not known. The statue is made of wood and almost 50 cm high! After winding, a catch can be flipped making the man whistle and move his head. During the whistling, the lamp in the lantern lights up. The melody is: For He's a Jolly Good Fellow The mechanism works very well and the melody is powerful.
Collection or shipment both possible.

    Ik ben heel enthousiast over de speeldoos.
    Hij functioneert goed. Alleen jammer, dat een van de fietswieltjes los in de verpakking zat ( met schroefje, waarschijnlijk afgebroken) .
    Bedankt.
