Beautiful Olympia Disc music box, in good playing condition. The finish on the case appears to be original, and the case measures approx 22in. By 10 1/2 in. Some of the discs play very well, some are in rougher shape, but still play. The arm that clamps down needs a new head–the one on it now is damaged, but clips in place to hold the disc down to play. I know this has been serviced, but I suspect that the insides are all original. I normally crank 4 revolutions when I play a disc, as I don’t want to overwind the box, and the crank/gears feel “tight”. The sound is beautiful–I have several boxes, and the tone on this one is the best of the ones I have.

In addition, there are mechanisms inside the box that would have been connected to the clock in order to play a tune on the hour (the hole visible in photo #8 is probably for a shut-off switch in case you didn’t want the box to play). The sectional comb, divided into groups of two, likely dates this box to the 1820s or 1830s – very early in the history of music boxes! A low serial number – 893 – is stamped on the bedplate and the comb. This box has a really great tone and wonderfully complex tune arrangements. Hear it on Youtube by searching Sarah Brown sectional comb music box. The tunes are still unidentified, although I have a possible clue as to #1. Any help identifying tunes would be greatly appreciated! There are six tunes. Some previous owner, probably counting the tunes, marked the number 6 in Roman numerals inside the case – you might be able to see it in photo #5 if you zoom in on the upper left corner of the case interior. The case measures 22.5″ long by 10″ wide by 3.5 tall. The main body of the case appears to be carved out of a solid chunk of wood, with a gorgeous overlay of what is probably mahogany veneer. The case has sustained a bit of damage here and there in its nearly two hundred years of existence – there are some old woodworm holes, and there is a damaged area on one corner that has been repaired rather poorly (photo #3). There is also some general wear commensurate with the box’s age. All in all, though, the box is very sturdy and well built, and the patina on the veneer is phenomenal! In photo #4, you can see the winding key, along with one knob. The other knob has fallen off, but I do have it, and it will be included with the box. The knob on the left is a start/stop switch; the missing one is a tune change/repeat switch. I have yet to figure out if this box has a mechanism to automatically stop the music at the end of a tune; right now, I manually pull the start/stop knob out to start the music, and push it back in at the end of a tune. The movement itself appears to be in phenomenal condition – it winds and plays readily and at a good tempo and volume. It has a nice tone for an early box – not tinny. There are a couple slight squeaks/creaks, probably from missing dampers, and the movement could stand a very light cleaning (just a bit of dust). If you really wanted to, you could probably send it to a music box specialist for a full disassembly, cleaning and polishing, but I also think it could be left in its current condition with no problems. Well, I think that about covers it… Please look at the photos carefully and watch the video so you know what you’re getting – this box may not be the shiniest or biggest one out there, but what an amazing piece of history!

Hello everyone, what i have here is a music box that i no nothing about. All i can tell you is Its old, its dirty, and it plays when i blow on that little spinning thing.

But for those of you who interested there listed inside the lid! Yep that what i said under the lid (see pics) Please ask feel free to ask any questions and i will do my best to answer them. I’m going to start this at the low low price of. Yes I said it, less than one dollar! So start biding music box junkies!

VERY RARE TO FIND A 100% ORIGINAL ANTIQUE EXAMPLE. THIS IS THE MASSIVE TWO FOOT TALL MODEL IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND WAS CRAFTED IN THE LATE 1800’s. Conserving means keeping the piece original and diligently cleaning the piece instead of re-feathering the birds, replacing the fabric cage floor, foliage, etc. This is a rare find. Look at the beautiful iridescent violet/purple feathers on the larger bird. I just serviced the mechanical movement and the birds sing with full voice, hitting all of the wonderful oscillating bird song notes and animate perfectly. The bird song is incredibly lifelike on the large scale models. The movement has clearly been properly maintained/serviced throughout the past 120 years and the wooden bellows would have been recovered with leather at some point in time. On a full wind, this will play for approximately two minutes, thirty seconds. The original bird feathers still retain vibrant color and iridescent effects. These are true taxidermy birds (with real bird beaks and legs/feet) that are wrapped around a brass bird exoskeleton. This cage measures 22 inches tall including the ring, 18 inches otherwise and has a diameter of 11 inches. I included a photo with a normal size antique singing bird cage for scaling purposes; the normal size bird cage is not for sale/part of this listing. I made two videos, one showing the finished piece and another showing the internal mechanics. In summary, this is a wonderful example and rare 100% original condition. I did replace the three rubber cushions on the wood base bottom as the originals were dried out and no longer provided protection for whatever this cage will rest on – I will include the originals in a small bag. HEAR IT PLAY (two videos – one of the finished automaton and a second showing how the internal mechanics work). PLEASE EXPLORE MY OTHER LISTINGS. CONSULTATIONS ARE FREE AS I ENJOY SHARING WHAT I KNOW. Troy Duncan, CPA, retired. The item “ANTIQUE MASSIVE BONTEMS SINGING BIRD CAGE AUTOMATON MUSIC BOX (WATCH VIDEO)” is in sale since Saturday, September 24, 2016. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Decorative Collectibles\Music Boxes\Pre-1900″. The seller is “singingbirdbox” and is located in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
