Heres a wonderful old wind-up music box that plays 10 songs as listed below. Marked SWISS and JACOTS PATENTED SAFETY CHECK SEPT 22, 1888 on the inside levers. The body of the music box is wooden. The hinged lid has been painted black, with a floral design on the top. The sides look like theyve been antiqued, with a black and brown streaked finish. The inner works are made of different types of metal. The music box measures about 19.25 wide X 6.5 tall X 8.5 deep. It weighs about 17.5 poundsvery heavy! Tacked to the inside of the lid is a beautiful certificate of authenticity that includes a playlist of the 10 songs, as follows. 2— The Star Spangled Banner. 3— Zu 91Carseillaise sp? 5— The red white and Blue Brittania. 6— Kathleen 91Savourneen sp? 7— Robin asair sp? Theres a shield logo on the lower left corner of the certificate that is marked as follows. M S F 1816. Theres also a cross in the center of the logo. Underneath the shield is printed. MARQUE DE FABRIQUE. No 68231, with the number 9403 printed in pencil beneath. THERE ARE MARKINGS ON THE INSIDE PARTS AND LEVERS AS FOLLOWS. On the PLAY and STOP lever. Theres a shield at the bottom of the lever marked M S F 1816, with a cross in the center of the shield. The REPEAT and CHANGE lever is marked SWISS. The wind up lever on the outside of the music box works easily and the music begins immediately and sounds beautiful. Every once in a while theres a short thump as the music plays. The exterior of the music box has numerous scratches and worn areas, as you can see in the photos, but the box is very sound and sturdy. On the top exterior of the lid are several small, round flecks of what appears to be white paint. There is a keyhole on the outside front of the music box, but no key. When you open the lid, there is a glass cover that protects the inner works of the music box. It appears that the glass has been reinforced with what looks to be some kind of caulk at some timeno cracks or breaks in the glass, its just a little smudgy. There is a notch in the wood casing to assist in lifting the glass cover to reveal the inner works. The certificate of authentication thats tacked to the underside of the lid is somewhat yellowed and worn, with a creased corner and little dark pinpoint specks on the paper, but it is quite readable and still beautiful. There are worn areas on the painted surface of the inside of the lid. The STOP lever and the REPEAT lever do not work. I have not attempted to clean or repair or refurbish this music box in any way other than a basic dusting. The music box will be insured and packaged VERY CAREFULLY. Local Pick-up is always welcome.
