Rare German Christmas tree stand with music box, ca 1800’s. Almost identical to #251 except winding mechanism is different and this one is not visibly signed anywhere. I know the consignor had it in running order, which runs and plays just like #251, but I hesitate to wind it fully and it is hesitant about running. Needs to be oiled in my opinion. This one is about 10 inches across the bottom. $200-$300.
