There is no mistaking that these are fire station dogs. The hat is right in front of them to show it. This is a Linda Pickens design for Otagiri. This music box rotates as it plays As Time Goes By. This is an adorable music box with an excellent musical mechanism -- no dragging and no noise. However, there is a chip on the base in the back. You can clearly see the chip in the photos. If you can live with the chip, this is a great deal since the price is reduced because of the chip.
