A massive and very early sectional comb music box that plays perfectly and looks amazing. I fully restored this music box so everything works as it should with zero worries. The burl wood grain on the top case piece is gorgeous. It is rather rare to see such a large and early music box available for sale. The two teeth per section music box has an 11.75 inch cylinder, 90 teeth and plays six songs. It has a pleasing tonal quality with deep base, sweet mid range and bright treble notes. Restoring an antique music box to superb playing condition typically costs more than the actual music box itself so when you find a fine example (like this one) that plays exceptionally well you are ahead of the game. This is a “no apologies” sectional comb music box. There are not any maker’s marks on this music box which is not uncommon for very early pieces. The mechanical design of this music box and having only two teeth per section on such a large example indicate a crafting date of around 1820. There are also not any metal dampers by design which is another sign of an early music box. Note – the dark spaces between the sections is actually the original resin used when the teeth were secured to the comb and not dirt/grime; the original resin is often times mistakingly removed, which negatively impacts playing quality. This would originally have been used a base for a large clock that would have sat on this music box with a large glass dome. Mechanical and musical/tonal condition is excellent as the video demonstrates. The case naturally shows signs of use, age and prior repairs. The case measures approximately 22.5 x 10 x 3.5 inches. HEAR IT PLAY ALL SIX SONGS. YouTube videos never do a music box justice and they always sound richer in person. PLEASE EXPLORE MY OTHER LISTINGS.

RARE & UNUSUAL ANIMATED CLOCK PAINTING We are pleased to offer one of the most unique musical specialty items ever to grace our collection. An oil-on-canvas painting, depicting a typical blacksmith’s shop of the day, with large, life-like animated figures superimposed over the painting. And, as is typical of such tableaux featuring Angelus chimes, there is a church in the scene, incorporating the clock. We have had musical paintings, some with clocks, before, but never with this combination of features. Large tableau with original frame, measuring 36″ wide x 31″ high x 9 deep. 8-tune Swiss music box, with 11.5 cylinder, and original tune card. 8-day clock, with silk-thread suspension, activating the music box on the hour. Weekly Angelus chimes (call to prayers) activated by a separate clock movement. The animation movements are quite large and fascinating to watch: two men forging a horseshoe on an anvil; an assistant pumping the bellows to stoke the furnace; a farrier shoeing a horse; the horse nodding his head and a small dog wagging his tail. The fine Swiss music box is in excellent condition, playing without any broken teeth or damper squeaks. Made in France and dating to about 1870, this is just about the most complex assemblage of components we have ever seen. The clock and Angelus movements may require a bit of adjustment after transport, but otherwise everything should work well “right out of the box”.
