Antique B A Bremond Music Box 6 Songs Runs Plays Great Inlaid Wood Case Switzerland. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself! We have not come across a beautiful music box and case like this one in a while. The top, sides and bottom are in very good condition. No warping, splits or repairs that we can ascertain. Uncommon beveled edge to the top of the case as well. Three rectangular lines of inlay on the front of the case, one within the other. Two lines of inlay on the front of the case. The glass in intact on the inner door over the movement, no cracking or blistering. The right hinge of the inner door could use some tightening attention. A couple of raised bumps in the wood just inside the inlay in the left bottom corner of the lid top. My best guess is that the music box dates to the latter 1870s to mid-1890s and is Swiss made by BAB. This music box was very well maintained over the years. The 8 long pin cylinder has a beautiful gold lacquer finish on it, probably re-lacquered at some juncture. There are approximately 78 teeth on the comb and all the teeth are in place. The wind mechanism of the movement works as expected and the wind spring feels sound when keyed. The music box comes with a vintage wind key. The song indicator arrow does move along the nickel plated lyre to indicate some being played. Moves, but not sure if accurate. The brass lock is still with the music box. There is no key. The case is in just amazing condition. Nice wood inlay on the top of the case and the front of it. Beautiful mother of pearl and brass escutcheon on the top of the lid. No cracks, splits or missing pieces. The top of the case sits down evenly on the base and is firmly attached to the base by its’ hinges. No warping of the top going on with this music box which is a common malady that one comes across with these older boxes. So, very uncommon to find one in such great shape. The inside door with the glass over the music box is securely attached to the case. The glass is intact, no cracking or blistering. The music card listing is inside of the case. Says Geneva at bottom of the card. Not sure what the translation of the tunes are that the music box plays, see pic of the music care. The music movement has BAB, with the first B being backwards on the top of the brass structure that holds the flywheel. The song label also has B A and then some of the B on it. So, those two indicators make this a B A Bremond Swiss Music Box. They made music boxes from the 1860s to 1916. The brass wind arm has 18742 on the handle. Could mean this music box was made in the second half of 1874, could mean something else. Nice red ruby as the bushing for the flywheel pivot point on top. The comb is in excellent condition. All the approximately 78 (approximately) teeth are in place, and we see no past repairs to any of the teeth. The nickel plated finish on the comb looks good. The pin cylinder looks is in very nice shape finish wise. Cannot say if any of the pins are bent or missing. The music box tunes sound great when the music box is played, so sounds like the pins are all hitting the comb teeth as expected. The removable wind arm is with the case and still securely attached to the movement. The spring on the music box feels sound when keyed. Do not see a visible serial number on the movement. The stop and start selector button works, as does the replay/change selector. The music box case is 5.5″ tall, by 16-7/8″ across, by 8 wide.
