Beautiful c. 1890s German Xylophone with Litho Decorated Sides

Regular price $48.00

I really love the look of this antique toy xylophone, which I would hand vertically on the wall from one nail at the top, looking like a beautifully wonky ladder and also ready to serve as a dinner bell! Made in Germany, c. 1890s, the sides feature paper litho designs of musicians in clown costumes as well as flowers, and the faces of its metal bars are engraved with their notes on the scale. No mallets included, but any old stick or dowel would do the trick!

17 5/8" l x 3" w x 1 3/4" d. Aged in to my eye a really beautiful way and in very good, sturdy structural condition. Some wear and minor loss to the paper litho on the sides. There is one nail (holding on the high C) which looks to have been replaced at some point, definitely a long time ago.
