Beautiful and very well preserved circa 1888 Mermod Freres Cylinder Music Box with 10 Songs In fine working order. The Music is beautiful, the wood inlays look stunning. Everything Original including the song list, all teeth, EVEN THE KEY!! (the song list is very faded I cannot make out the names). The Mermod Swiss Shield with 1816 is found at least twice in the box, the cylinder measures almost 7 inches. The original music list is titled Airs. Programme 6 1/2 pouces. The Serial Number (handwritten) on the music list is 79743 and that matches the Serial Number given inside the box near the cylinder 79743. The dimensions are 17″W X 8.5″L X 6H and weighs 16 pounds. The last Jacot’s safety check patent is dated May 1888. This is a family heirloom and as far as we know only been owned by one family. I will try to answer all questions as accurately as possible and attach them to the listing. There were four sons in the family – Louis, Philippe, Gustav, and Leon and in 1833 they founded Mermod Freres in Ste Croix. Initially, they largely made clocks and watches, and it was not until sometime later in the 19th century that they began manufacturing music boxes. Mermod Freres was very successful until 1929 when the Great Depression put them out of business.
