Item Type: Carving
Full Description: An Austrian musical box and carving of a grinning street musician playing a melodeon. The carving's square plinth contains a clockwork music box movement. There are countless examples around the world of small figurines, carvings, toys and trinkets that use (or more correctly abuse) the concertina as a feature to add 'cuteness' to such objects. The Collection includes but a few examples: the leading collection of such items is that of Henrik Műller of Sweden, whose amazing collection may be viewed here .
