Beautiful 1890 Swiss 8-tune music box . . . plays Waltz tunes.
Movement is nickel plated, ratchet wound, with tune repeater switch.
The cylinder is a 'Paillard' interchangeable cylinder (only one); it's missing pins but
can be easily restored for probably around $300.00.
Has a 108 tooth split comb.
The music box also has a moveable brass lifting case.
It plays very well, sounds good and is in good running order.
The dimensions are 36' long, 21' high (lid open) & 14' wide.
A few, small dings are visible, but nothing that makes this anything less than beautiful.
Other than the few dings and its being an old piece (antique, not reproduction),
the case is in very good condition.
There is a nicely done Mandolin with floral design inlay on the top and front of the music box.
As mentioned, this is a beautiful, antique music box that, unfortunately, is not well depicted
by the poor photography; please accept our apologies.
Also, what you are seeing is the box on a dolly, where it has been well protected and covered for some time.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email , since this is a 'sold as is-sorry no returns' sale;
we are happy to help you with any questions or more picture requests you may have.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this lovely music box; it's hard to part with and we appreciate your interest.
