Reuge-sainte Croix 4/50 Music Box, Very Worn Box; Plays Well; 4 Songs 50 Notes:
You can still see that at some point, this was a truly lovely box. It definitely has its problems though; one complete piece of the box lid is missing, and the lid back veneer looks cracked and badly repaired. There are various chips and scars and even what looks like paint flecks. If there is supposed to be protective glass over the movement, it is missing; however, the movement plays sprightly and without any problems that I can see or hear, but I am not a music box expert. If I can figure out a way to load a sound file, I will do so. The front button moves to one side to play or the other side to stop play, and it works well. The interior label is readable but looks like it was misprinted or rubbed. There are some age spots on the movement, but I don't see anything that looks like rust or mold. 7.25 wide x 4 deep x 2.75 high. My guess is that this is probably worth it for the movement. The box is usable if you don't mind the problems...I've enjoyed playing it over the year I've had it. I am guessing on the Buy It Now price; I have no idea what it is actually worth.Always happy to answer questions! Where possible, I do combine shipping (some items don't ship well together; I'd ship this with any of the fabric I'm listing, but not the other music box).Other information: I've been on a long time under another name but have not sold in a while. I have 3 dogs and foster puppies for our animal shelter (which...is expensive. And is why I'm back to selling again). While they are not allowed near the things, dog hair does seem to get everywhere, no matter what I do. If you have allergies, you will want to look at someone else's items for sale.
