Up for sale is a BEAUTIFUL mahogany inlay antique large Swiss cylinder 8 song music box! This is an incredible antique in good working condition and seems to be overall good condition mechanically with obvious cosmetic blemishes and knicks / scratches to the wood. The length of this music box measures approximately 20.75 inches, width 9 inches, tall 6 inches. The cylinder measures approximately 11 inches! The top of the box is all inlay with the trumpet, mandolin, and floral arrangement and a little bit of the inlay border around the top has fallen out as pictured. All the center mural is present! The crank has some wear to the silver finish as this has been played many times. The box transitions through the 8 song cylinder flawlessly. The crank works wonderful as well as the change/repeat lever. The stop/play lever is only able to be used in between songs when a small notch lines up with the lever thats on a gear. Im not sure if its suppose to only be stopped at that time. The finish to the mahogany has worn in places but shows how much this piece was loved in the past by the family who owned it. One screw is missing from the left hinge. On the back of the outside of the box and inside where the right hinge is their is a crack in the wood that runs approximately 6.5 inches. This looks to be an old repair and is very solid. No wiggling or loose pieces here. The comb is missing teeth which can be seen in the last photo and the bar that rests above the comb is missing a small screw that causes it to rest above the comb but can be propped up and a replacement screw can easily be put in it. This music box is RARE and in working condition. The overall appearance has damage and wear but overall is a very solid piece and I’m listening to it currently play as I write this description loving every note.
