The buckets and pulley wheels are wooden. The "moving" parts are all metal; bucket chain (brass plated), steel axles, steel spring, and polished tinplate and steel gears.

In addition the well base, circular wall, and roof are all embossed. The base has its original Fleischmann decal, while the underside is stamped "Made in Western Germany" and "14/0".

The two piece box was covered with a light green, tiny cross-hatched design. The only markings are on the applied factory label "1 St. 237" and "Made in Western Germany".
