This wooden 4 1/2" round base will house an 18 note movement. There is a hole for a winding shank or carousel horse but it does not have to be used. The figurine can attach directly to the base with an attached platform in place of wind up key (the mechanism facing downward in side of the base) to rotate the entire piece.
The figurine can also be made to rotate above the base by attaching a small platform taking the place of the wind up key using the hole (the mechanism then faces upward inside the base) There is no hole for a stop/start pin. It stands 1 1/2" high on 3 little feet.
