Willitts Lion

Carousel Lion

Pretty sure this is supposed to be a Dentzel lion, but not 100% positive.
This piece came with different base configurations, most commonly with an oak music-box base or oval brass base though other combinations (such as a rocking-horse base) were produced in smaller quantities than the oak and brass bases.  The piece is about 7-8" to the top of the pole. There is usually no coin set into the bases of these. The music box (if it has one) almost always plays "The Carousel Waltz".

The average price of this piece when new was $40-$65.
