Antique Imperial Symphonion 13-1/2" Disc Music Box Wind Up Rare Coin Op Model For Sale
Have you been looking for that unmolested Imperial Syphonion Music Box? This machine is an original survivor that is from a local family who had it for years. We believe it to be Mahogany and this machine has the rare coin slot on the top and takes pennies.
It is in great shape for the age and appears to be original as far as we can tell. While it does have a few very minor marks and scratches, it had loads of patina and is outstanding to look at and listen to. Below is a video to see this machine in action:
Note that this inclused only one disc. We have a separate sale that includes 24 discs. The unit works well but the coin mechanism is finnicky and is currently on free play although the parts are present. The plated accessories should clean up well. The cabinet is in excellent condition, free of dents and damage. It may have been refinished years ago but it appears to have been done professionally if it has. Please look carefully at the photos below for a complete feel for the condition. Given the age, this machine is a survivor.
It would make a great addition to the collection. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer machine for the money and when you look at the age. Best of all, there is . We will let the market determine the value on this RARE piece.
Because of it’s age and the above, it is sold strictly as-is-as shown. Please remember that it is not functioning. That being said, please see our response and offer with confidence. If you have not owned a vintage Victrola, music box or Edison before, these can be temperamental and are not meant for continuous use all day long. In addition, there are small scuffs on the box as you can see in the photos. The most likely time of trouble is when they are moved.
