What a wonderful C h r i s t m a s g i f t i d e a to give to yourself or to someone who enjoys fine quality antiques….. Th is beautiful Stella 17 1/2 double comb disc player and matching disc storage cabinet with 38 discs pictured is being offered in this listing. It was serviced in late February of 2016 by Roger Puls of Parma, Ohio. He is the owner of Puls, Inc. He cleaned the mechanisms, tuned the combs to the original specs taking dozens of hours to do so! , and repaired the soundboard (there was a small crack in it). When he completed his work, we had a beautiful and nostalgic vintage disc player that plays well with all functions working! There are no missing or damaged teeth in either of the dual combs. Wording on the chromed plate reads, Brevette SGOG-British Patent; D. Muster; Swiss made; Patented, Sept. April 9, 1989; Aug. 2, 1897-+12748; June 29, 1897-+13796;Aug. The gold painted base plate has the number “6549″ engraved into it. The disc player was manufactured by Mermoot Freres, St. Croix, Switzerland, circa 1900. The disc player footed cabinet is made of mahogany with a nice finish for its age. Dimension are 29 1/2 wide” at the base by 22″ deep and the cabinet is 15 high There are small nail holes around the perimeter of the player lid that have been filled with wood filler many years ago. There is a drawer for the storage of discs and the original pulls are in place. There is also a brass escutcheon and a brass key for the player lid. The original crank handle with black wood knob shows nice patina wear from usage over the many years. The footed disc storage cabinet is also original to the player and is 30 1/2″ wide by 23″ deep and it is 29 1/2 tall. The original casters are in place. The keyhole opening is missing the small brass escutcheon and the key is included. I cannot assume any liability for the pieces once they leave my home. I will, however, be happy to make suggestions as to how to have it insured. Following are the titles of the discs : Silver Lake Varsoviana, circa 1889; Artist Life Waltz, circa 1896; Babes in Toyland Waltz (#99); The Wedding of the Reuben and the Maid (#774); Soi mienne Sei Mein (#350), circa 1897; Valse Bleu (#718); Creole Belles March Two Step (#788); Funeral March (#251), circa 1897; Old Heidelberg (#1208); The Gondolier (#958); Carmen-Song of the Toreedor (#221), circa 1897; The Tyrolean-Nightengale (#65).

Circa 1890 musical automaton manufactured by Gustave Vichy. Seated upon a wooden bench stands a clown with a paper mache head with beautiful facial expression with glass eyes, closed mouth with painted teeth, brown hair wig, carton torso, bisque arms and legs, wearing striped silk costume and on his waistcoat, has an ornament with the shape of a dragonfly, black shoes, and a top hat on his head (the top hat is fixed on the wig with a hair clip). In his left hand, he holds a tambourine and in his right hand he holds a mask. When wound, music plays and the movements begin: he turns his head from side-to-side, raises his right hand holding the mask to eye level, raises the left hand to play the tambourine and moves his legs. A spring-driven clockwork movement is hidden within his bench. The movement is stamped G. Vichy Paris and it has its original key. Dimensions: wooden bench approximately 6.7 inches (17cm) wide and 9.4 inches (24cm) height. Total height approximately 21.3 inches (54 cm). Thanks for your interest. Video will open in a new window.
