MELODY IN MOTION / WACO Vintage CLOWN WITH BALLOONS Porcelain MUSIC BOX BASE
Vintage Melody in Motion Clown Music Box.
Fantastic vintage estate piece, Clown sits on suitcase holding umbrella with one hand and three balloons in the other. The piece weighs 2 pounds 5 ounces. Measures 6 inches wide, 4-1/2 inches deep, 13 inches high. Uses 3 "AA" batteries (not included) for music box in base. When switched on, Clown whistles "Around the World in Eighty Days" while head moves back and forth.
Condition: After installing batteries, we turned the switch on and Clown began to whistle and move head back and forth. Volume control is stiff and noisy (needs contact cleaner). There is a "sweet" spot on the volume control where the whistle works fine. Porcelain is quite dusty from storage, but no chips or cracks were noted. All pictures show the actual Clown you will receive.
