So, with that said, i will do my best to describe this musical movement and do my best to answer any questions you may have. I sent pictures to my expert and he said that paillard is a well known and very desirable mfg of musical boxes, known for very high quality and very well sounding movements, he also added that they are highly collectable and very desirable by collectors. He also said that this type of musical movement incorporated into a photo album he has never seen before nor has he seen a musical movement this small that plays 4 melodies either. He’s guessing between 1885 and 1895 for date of mfg but, can not confirm until he looks at the movement for himself. The movement and case is exactly as i pulled it out of the box, i have done nothing to this movement. The movement takes a full wind and runs down completely so, i can tell you the mainspring seems to be in good shape along with the governor as well. It does seem to play a bit fast but, this can be corrected by a governor fly speed adjustment, all the teeth are present and complete with tips on the comb, this is a very good thing because my guy charges a small fortune when he has to replace teeth on a comb and he’s not giving up his secrets either, he won’t allow me to stick around and watch him do a repair. All the melodies seem to be audible and sound very good with exceptionally good volume as well, the latch hasp is spring loaded and when it is released and pushed down to open the album, the movement is then actively playing and continues to play until the latch is closed. The tune sheet is in great shape and perfectly legible, the melodies/airs include “the maiden and the jay”, ” i’m a jonah man”, laxarre haltzes???? “, ” hiawatha summer day???? Those last two i can’t be sure of, anyone out there with an opinion or answer to those last two tunes, i would welcome your input. I believe hiawatha was an american indian princess i believe. The photo album itself is pretty much the shape and condition i would expect it to be considering the age of this piece. It is complete, all the gold leafed album pages appear to be there, all the ornate stamped brass decorations on the legs of the album are there. There is a sizeable tear on the top cover, i have no idea how a restorer would even attempt to repair that. That’s about it, any questions, feel free to ask, i’ll do my best to answer you. I have other items listed, including some clocks and a cnc conversion hardware kit for a sherline lathe. I’ll also be listing some cuckoo clocks in the near future, both modern and antique, take a look if you’re interested. Dimensions: 12 1/2″ w, 5″ h, 9 1/2 w. I pack my items the same way i like to receive them.The item “Antique paillard cylinder music box photo album” is in sale since Tuesday, March 24, 2015.
