The box itself is in nice shape. The dancers, especially the girl have been on the dance floor for quite a while.I remember playing with this at my grandmas in the early 70s. The dancers still look and move well. Mirrors show some haze in certain lighting. Still a great piece with or without touch up. It plays the Merry Widow Waltz and the dancers move to automaton. Go ahead and look for another one on here.
It is extremely nice, but not near as old. Very fair price for its condition, I think its 1/18 music gears.
Enjoy it as it is. Replacement doll/dolls as it is one piece are very reasonable, the value of the piece is in the mechanics inside the box.
