This lovely vintage music box plays the song “On the Street Where You Live”. This popular song came from the 1956 stage and 1964 movie production of “My Fair Lady”. The music box was made by Schmid Music Collectibles and is dated 1983. The music box is a wood church with a tall steeple and it is decorated for Christmas. It can be lighted, but the bulb and cord is missing. Replacement cords can be found.
The front of the church has tall columns. There are two large wreaths with red bows on the upper front church windows. The sides of the church are lined with small decorated evergreens on small wood discs. The roof of the church is partially snow covered and it has a painted cobbled roof. There is a clock painted on the steeple of the church.
The music box works. It is a wind up mechanism and has a small wooden knob on the side of the church that starts and stops the music box after it is wound. Always be careful to never over wind a music box.
It is marked with the manufacturer’s name on the bottom and a paper label with the title of the song.
The church is in overall good condition. It is missing a cross that would have been on top of the steeple and there are some teeth marks on the steeple. One of the evergreen trees is missing from the side of the church and three of the evergreens are very wobbly standing on their wooden stands.
This is a great item for those who like to collect vintage Christmas ornaments, music box collectors, or those that are fans of the musical “My Fair Lady”.
It measures approximately 7” by 5 ½” and is 11” tall to the top of the steeple.
