ALWAYS REMEMBER WHEN BUYING A MUSIC BOX THERE ARE THINGS TO MAKE SURE ARE RIGHT. ONE IS THAT IT IS WORKING. AND THE OTHER IS TO CHECK THAT ALL THE TEETH ARE OK, AND ALSO THE TIPS. AS IT COSTS ABOUT £50 PER TOOTH TO BE REPAIRED, AND NEVER SOUNDS THE SAME. ALSO MAKE SURE THE NUMBER ON THE SONG SHEET IS THE SAME AS THE MOVEMENT, TO AVOID IT BEING AMARRIAGE OF MORE THAN ONE BOX.
SO THIS TIME YOU ARE offerDING ON AVERY OLD EBONISED ROSEWOOD WORKING MUSIC BOX WITH ALL IT'S TEETH & TIPS, AS SEEN IN MY PHOTOS. IT IS IN WORKING ORDER BY THE MOST WELL KNOWN SWISS MAKERS "NICOLE FRERES" THE CASE IS IN GOOD EBONISED CASE FOR IT'S AGE BUT HAS A FEW OLD TREATED WORMHOLES AT THE BACK AND ALTHOUGH IT IS WORKING FINE WHERE YOU WIND IT UP WITH THE KEY IS A LITTLE LOOSE. IT HASSTOP AND START, AND REPEAT & CHANGE. ALL IN WORKING ORDER. AND AS YOU CAN SEE IT HAS A KEY WINDING MOVEMENT AT THE SIDE. WHICH WAS BEFORE THEY MADE THE LEVER WIND.
THE MUSIC BOX MEASURES 19.5" WIDE X 6" DEEP AND 5" HIGH. IT WAS MADE IN SWITZERLAND AND IT PLAYS EIGHT AIRS. AND ALSO IT'S OLD ORIGINAL MUSIC SHEET IT DATES TO ABOUT THE MID TO LATE 1800s IT APPEARS TO BE ALL ORIGINAL, APART FROM I HAD TO REPLACE THE COVER GLASS, WHICH ONLY SLIPS OVER THE MOVEMENT TO KEEP IT FREE FROM DUST SO NOT A FIXTURE.
THE BOX AS YOU CAN SEE IN MY PHOTOS IS ALL ORIGINAL. THE NUMBER AND MAKERS NAME IS ON THE MOVEMENT, ALSO ON THE 13" INCH COMB ANDBARREL. AND EVEN THE NUMBER 22165 ON THE BASE OF THE CASE. AS SEEN IN MY MANY PHOTOS, AND THE SOUND ISIN TUNEAND CLEAR. WHICH IS WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A WELL MADE MUSIC BOX.AND WE ALL KNOW THERE IS NOTHING TO REPLACE THE SOUND OF AN OLD MUSIC BOX.
THIS NINETEENTH CENTURY SWISS MUSICAL BOXHAS A LOCK AND A KEY WITH A TASSEL BUT NOT A WORKING KEY. YOU WILL KNOW ALL OF TUNES IF YOU ARE THE LUCKY buyer. BUT AS THEY ARE IN SCRIPT, AND AFOREIGNLANGUAGE I CANNOT TELL YOU THE NAMES.
SO I WISH YOU ALL GOOD LUCK ON YOUR offerDING. AND BE SURE TO VIEW MY MANY OTHER ITEMS. ALSO BE SURE TO CHECK IF offerDING FROM OUT OF THE UK. THE SHIPPING COST.
