MAPSA Movement in Hummel Musical Box

-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMD --

I recently purchased to Hummel Music Boxes from a vendor at the local
flea market.  Both music boxes are round, clear, fit in the palm of
my hand, have the words "MAPSA Swiss Musical Movement" on a red label
underneath each.  The musical pieces inside each clear container have
the words "MAPSA" on it, then Switzerland.  "Swiss Musical Movement"
is engraved on the musical piece inside each container.

The first music box has an original Hummel print of a Boy w/umbrella,
bushel filled with blue flowers slung over his shoulder.   The words
underneath the box read: "Der Frohliche Wanderer".

The second music box also has the original Hummel print of a girl with
a brown basket in her arm, waving a red handkerchief.  The words
underneath the box read: "Auf Wiedersehen".

These look pretty old, does anybody have information they could share
with me?
