Manufactured at the famous Steinbach factory which is most noted for their nutcrackers, however, during the early days, they mainly produced wooden music boxes and figurines.

This music box has Thorens Swiss movement and plays "Es klappert die Mühle" (The Rattles of the Mill). Plenty of pictures are provided to enable you to assess the overall condition of the music box.

The mill clatters at the rushing stream. After winding, the plate with the house rotates as the mill wheel turns and the hammers go up & down.
