The lithography on this toy is in remarkably fine totally original condition with strong unfaded colours and the finish is virtually unscratched. The monkey is totally original too. The box has it's original coloured label on the lid and the smaller Distler label on one side panel however the box when found was in pieces and has been repaired.
The mechanism including the plink plonk sound works well however occasionally the organ grinder's right hand catches where he turns the mechanism. The only other fault common to all of these toys is that the wheels wobble.
