ANTIQUE EUGENE BORNAND SWISS CYLINDER MUSIC BOX KEY WIND 1840'S


RARE ANTIQUE EUGENE BORNAND SWISS CYLINDER MUSIC BOX KEY WIND 1840′S! Listen to it play now as you review! The founder of the famous Bornand Music Box Company, Eugene Bornand, was a master music box maker and created this outstanding cylinder music box I offer here! The music from this spectacular piece is awesome and there are a total of 12 tunes with the unusual format of “two tunes per revolution” of the cylinder. Due to such a fine comb with many teeth per inch, the music it makes is very elaborate involving several chromatic scale octaves. It contains a large 13″cylinder in a case that is 20 1/2″ long. The beautiful inlay is perfect and the tune card under the lid is complete and entirely legible having minor stains. There is no motor noise and the main spring is very strong, playing through the entire program on a good winding. The early movement is made of solid brass, as cast iron wasn’t developed yet. The three left hand side controls were popular during the 1830’s and 1840’s as well as the drop down side door before the typical top right hand side controls were developed. Notice there is no glass cover as it wasn’t invented yet. Also, it has a red stained interior which predates the black one. Don’t miss this collector’s premium museum quality piece.
