Antique Large Swiss Cylinder Music Box 9 Bells 12 Airs



It was made in Geneva, Switzerland, about 1882. There were several makers at worked there at that time period, and most of them never marked their mechanisms with any identifying marks. Usually, but not always, the program card will lead to identifying the maker, the comb is rusty and have two broken teeth. 67 teeth in all with 9 teeth on small comb for bells. It is 26 1/2 x11 1/2 x 10 tall it is in nice shape for how old it is. It does need some work done to it! I understand with 9 bells, it is a museum quality piece and as such, certainly deserves to be correctly restored. It will play for a few seconds then stop. Might just need some cleaning and replace the two teeth. The item “Antique Large Swiss Cylinder Music Box 9 Bells 12 Airs” is in sale since Wednesday, February 10, 2016.
