This is an extraordinary Swiss single-cylinder music box in fantastic condition. The inlay on the top and front of this box is in nearly perfect condition. The box also has an ivory keyhole cover which, according to the Farmhouse Museum at Iowa State University, is very unusual. Also rare is the intact zither attachment. As can be seen in photo #7 there is a glass door protecting the inner workings of the box, (the door has been lifted in photo #6 for a better view of the components). The text on the “8 Airs: 8 1/2 pces” playlist is as follows: 1. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, 7. Albans Grand March, 8. The Bull Dog on the Bank. Has wonderful sound and it plays whole songs. For example, for those who know the lyrics to the “Grandfather’s Clock” song, it plays the whole thing, The grandfather clock was too large for the shelf, so it stood 90 years on the floor. It was taller by half than the old man himself, though it weighed not a penny weight more. It was bought on the morn of the day that he was born and was always his pleasure and pride, but it stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died. Ninety years without slumbering, tick-tock, tick-tock, his life seconds numbering, tick-tock, tick-tock. It stopped, short, never to go again when the old man died. Of course the box doesn’t sing the song, (that would make it infinitely more valuable), but if you feel like singing along… The whole thing is here. Size: 19 1/4″ overall width by 9 1/4″ overall depth and about 6 1/2 tall. The owner of this incredible music box travels.
