MELODY IN MOTION / WACO Vintage WILLIE THE HOBO TRUMPETER CLOWN Music Box SIGNED
Vintage Melody in Motion Clown Music Box.
Fantastic vintage estate piece, Clown sits on wooden crate while playing "When the Saints Go Marching In" on the trumpet. The piece weighs 3 pounds 1 ounce. Measures 7-1/4 inches wide, 6-1/2 inches deep, 12 inches high. Uses 3 "AA" batteries (not included) for music box in base.
Condition: After installing batteries, we turned the switch on and music came from the base, but the clown did not move at all. The movement mechanism is not working and will need to be repaired. Volume control is slightly noisy and would benefit from a shot of contact cleaner, but it is quite usable as is. Porcelain is dusty from storage, but there are no chips, cracks, or repairs. All pictures show the actual Clown you will receive.
