Absolutely beautiful vintage chrome with wooden bottom key wound musical base/stand. Made by Lador Swiss Switzerland.After some research I believe this is a Christmas tree stand. Commonly used for feather Christmas trees. I have tested & the music box works. Im unsure if its suppose to revolve?
Some I seen do rotate & some do not. You turn the key on top several times then you turn the left lever forward & pull up & the music will start playing. Then to stop you simply switch the lever on the right & the music stops playing.
The condition is great for its age. The chrome is excellent with only light surface scratches. The wood base is also nice with a few spots of wear (last photo) but not to bad.
Could use a good oiling to internal parts. This is exactly the way I acquired it. Measures 133/4 in diameter across wood base & stands 31/4 tall not including key or post. Post is 11/2 tall & 3/8 in diameter. There is a good chance we can settle any issues you may have.I strongly believe in "A picture is worth a thousand words" so I strive to take several quality photos of all angles of the actual item you will be receiving. I encourage you to view ALL photographs & use zoom feature for detailed close ups. Please read " Item Condition " for detailed condition information. Our feedback is set to respond to your feedback.
