According to Haining (Wonderland) is one the most striking of the Nister movables.

Very Good with all movables complete and working. Of the 35 or so diagonal cut pieces one on the seashore scene is torn off at the corner but not very noticeable as it still meets the center dial. All scenes have with original ribbons and are working. Book is still well bound, it has some slight chipping on some page edges.
