This absolutely stunning 1800’s music box is in very good condition for its age and plays very well, with good sound and appears to be very well in tone for every note. Many boxes from this age have broken teeth that hinder their laying ability where this box has all of the teeth intact and in excellent condition. The top of the box shows a lovely floral design in the center with some areas of it that have worn off with time. The top also has two strips of inlay that turn around the top of the box in rectangles, every piece of inlay is intact and none are missing. The top of the box shows some patina type wear to the outer edges of black paint where minor amounts have worn off. The top also has some scratches and marks (mainly lower right corner of the top) which are consistent with age and one circular spot of wear in the lacquer. The crank mechanism works smoothly and winds the music box well and consistently. The switches both work well the switch for repeat has wear over the e and the a. The glass is in very nice condition with no cracks or chips and one incredibly minor scratch in the center. The center paper insert has beautiful pictures and shows four songs. The paper insert is missing the corners and shows a center crease although the paper is still beautiful and fits the piece very nicely. There is no key to lock the box so the locking mechanism is untested. The front and sides of the box show beautiful antique finish and show only light wear. This box measures 12″ x 7″ x 4.75. On these old boxes if there is a slight jarring to the box the switches may come slightly out of alignment and can very easily be moved into place by hand. This box is priced to sell.
