Rare large 31 antique swiss cylinder music box. Presented for your consideration is this rare antique swiss music box circa 1800’s.
This music box is a huge music box measuring approximately 31″ long x 12″ deep x 9 tall. The cylinder measures approximately 16 3/8 long.
The 31 long walnut hardwood case features stunning natural swirls within the design of the wood. There is breathtaking inlay all over the case with fantastic musical designs. This music box works and sounds great. I have listed a link at the bottom of the listing for you to see this beautiful music box in action. The mechanism winds very smoothly via the crank on the left side and on the right side there are two levers.
The first lever changes/repeats the current air and the second stops/starts the mechanism between airs. It does however exhibit a few defects. The comb does exhibit 6 broken teeth although they do not affect the beautiful sounds this music box provides. Also there appears to be an issue with the start / stop lever as it will not stop when placed in the stop position.
It may at one time had a song card attached to the inside of the lid that is no longer present. The wooden case does exhibit wear associated with age such as scratches and minor loss to the finish. The right corner of the lid exhibits a 1 chip off the edge. Although this music box does exhibit a few defects they are mostly cosmetic or easily remedied in the right hands. It is still a wonderful antique piece that would make an excellent addition to any collection.
