Vintage Swiss Chalet Rotating Scene


These little Vintage revolving Wooden Swiss Chalet scenes, wind from the top (clockwise) and this one plays, " Music Box Dancer" on an 18 note Swiss Cuendet Mechanism and it measures 4 1/2" in diameter and 4" high.  They are all hand-painted with careful detail with some variations.  The varied tiny flowers are placed a bit differently, the cow is nicely carved with his head up rather than down as in the image.and the water trough has blue water. 

It is sweet and in excellent condition. Probably not played much.  It also has a now, rarely seen, wooden off/on sliding thumb piece to stop the music without lifting it from its place.  They don't make them like this any more.  Today most usually, the music on chalets are left to wind down.
