ANTIQUE GOLD GILT, SOLID STERLING SILVER. 930 AND GUILLOCHE SINGING BIRD BOX (CIRCA LATE 1800’s / early 1900’s). The guilloche tooling is amazing on this bird box and offers the illusion of zigzag patterns when in fact, the guilloche tooling is a series of wavy radial lines. It is very cool. The case is well crafted and in outstanding condition. The bird is highly colorful boasting a blue, green and red iridescent hummingbird feathers. Iridescent feathers present themselves differently depending upon the light source and viewing angle. I tried to capture the beauty of this bird using different angles in my video but cameras never do these feathers justice. This was crafted by the enigmatic German singing bird maker OMM. The OMM firm worked closely with Karl Griesbaum when Karl was first starting to craft singing bird boxes and also joined efforts with the Swiss firm of Raymy later on. OMM bird box movements always have the governor fan positioned to the rear and they are uncommon. I fully serviced (cleaned, adjusted, lubricated) the mechanical movement so this singing bird box operates perfectly. I also restored the bird using brand new parts. Buyers should be cautious when purchasing an antique singing bird box – always insist on seeing a photo of the mechanical movement for any singing bird box described as “antique”. This significantly impacts both current value and future value appreciation. The bird animates perfectly as follows: wings flap up/down, beak opens/closes, tail flutters up/down, bird turns left/right all the while singing to a beautiful oscillating bird song that is synchronized to the bird animation.

This is one of the finest quality disc music boxes in history. Here is a little background about Symphonion: Paul Lochmann was the co- patentee of the disc playing music box along with Ellis Parr of England. The Symphonion company, of Leipzig, began the manufacture of the first practical disc playing musical boxes in 1886. In 1889 Paul Wendland an engineer for Symphonion patented the starwheel which acts as the intermediary between the tabs on the discs and the combs. The starwheel had already been in use but this allowed for the horizontal mounting of the combs thereby increasing the acoustic quality of the music. They continued to make music boxes until 1914. In 1897 a production plant was established in New Jersey America but it was closed by 1902. I found a photograph of this exact model, in the book “Musical Box A History and Collectors Guide” by W. The top of the box has an inlaid flower design and brass adornments. The side panels are beautiful burl wood veneer. On the inside of the lid is a photograph. There is a hinged glass lid that covers the musical movement. On the right side of the box is the hand crank for winding the music box and on the left side there is a round push/pull knob that functions as the stop/start switch. The visible movement has two combs set up in the sublime harmony configuration. This music box comes with 12 discs (some discoloration and light rust on all the discs). It is beautifully hand crafted and also features the use of burl wood veneers. It has turned posts at the corners and rests upon 4 round legs. It is in good working order. Now I will let the pictures tell you the rest of the description. I used it very Little, Mainly to show people the sounds of a great music box.. Could be lower or more, not sure.

IN THIS SALE: One music Disc (Wedding March) and the Music Box shown playing the disc in the first picture! All pictures are of the player you will receive in this sale if the price is right! This company still makes and sells discs made of modern popular songs which are compatible with this player! In fine condition, a coin operated Regina Disc Music Box. Just look at the beautiful wood cabinet. This player comes complete with original coin chute and being used in the pioneer coin-op business, apparently had all the plaques and pictures removed from it, or maybe never had any pictures, icons or plaques attached, since it is apparently among the first group of 400 players made, but the old player is in fine shape being 125 years old from 1892. It’s one of the rarer single comb model low serial number 1392. The coin mechanism works as it should missing none of its teeth in the comb. There is a video playing this very early Regina disc #1036 Wedding March and sounding very strong! Disc numbers start at 1001 for the very first disc. Only 35 different songs (discs) were made before this one being 36th of 11370 different songs discs were ever made over the years by the Regina Company! See this Youtube Video of the this Beauty playing the Sound of The Wedding March Disc that is included in this sale along with the player! So if you would love to have one of these beautiful machines in your living room then don’t miss this rare opportunity by letting it get away! I have 100% no negatives feedback.
