The fully operational movement is set in motion by moving the small lever on the right from "STOP" to "PLAY." The lever above allows one to repeat a song or play the next on the cylinder, while the current song is indicated on a dial numbered one through six in the movement. A tune card on the inside lid lists all 84 musical options, and the cylinders not in use are stored in two drawers that extend from each side, as well as two additional cylinder boxes that accompany the piece. Inside and out, the craftsmanship of this machine is first class.
