I love this cute little vintage musical toy.

It dates to the 1950s and was made by Selcol. It is a little musical box - or organ grinder toy.

This is designed for a little child and they would pop the box over their neck and it would be held in place with the red coloured cotton cord. They would then turn the little red wooden turning handle at the side. When the handle is turned - it plays a little honky-tonk tune - which you can just make out is London Bridge is Falling Down - a strange choice given that all the images on the sides of the box are Italian ones.

When the handle is turned and the music plays there would have been a little monkey which danced about on top of the box - sadly, this is now missing.

The box is made of card covered with printed images on paper - on the front we have a Venetian gondola - the base has the Colosseum in Rome, the sides have the leaning tower of Pisa - and an Italian village scene on the other.

The back of the box is covered in a bright blue enamelled metal.

Apart from the missing wee monkey - it is in very good vintage condition - given that it is now nearly 70 years old - it is nice and clean. These wee music boxes are getting hard to find - and this one is listed at a fair price - it takes into consideration there is no monkey - but it is an unusual vintage mid-century nursery toy - and looks great on display today.

It measures: 5 1/4 x 6 x 3 inches.
