The fully serviced movement features 3 bells struck by colourful butterfly strikers, and two dancing dolls, one on each side of the bells, who dance to the music as it plays. The dolls are original and make a beautiful spectacle. 

The movement also features a tune indicator showing and plays 8 popular tunes as indicated on the original tunesheet, including ‘Rule Britannia’ as shown in the video. 

This comes in a grained case with an inlaid rosewood lid, and is all in perfect condition.
