Lovely Antique Miniature Mechanical and Musical French School Room

This wooden framed school room, forming a house-box when closed, hinges open to reveal a slanted-roof room with decorative roof line. The floor has its original lithographed paper cover. Various maps are on the interior walls. There are a teacher's desk, black-board, four wooden student desks and benches.

A be-spectacles teacher sits at her desk, with rare mechanical and musical movements. The Mechanism is intact and functions very well. The music is a very nice classic melody, perfect sound. When wound at the back, the teacher turns the head, waving the arms. She has glass inset eyes and she wears her original costume. The seven students with bisque head have five piece paper-mache bodies. Two students with appropriated costumes are staging a Corneille's play. Pierre Corneille is a French tragedian; he is generally considered one of the three great seventeenth-century French dramatists, along with Molière and Jean Racine. The other students are repeating the lesson.

School is 17 7/8"(45.5 cm) wide, 11 1/4"(28.5 cm) high, and 15 3/8"(39 cm) deep opened. Students are 3 1/2"(9 cm) tall.

Very good condition.
