Antique Swiss Music Box 12 Tunes Pin Roller 6 Bells and Drum Henry Gautschi & Sons Philadelphia Swiss Movement 1880s. Would make a great gift or keep it for yourself! We have not come across such a beautiful music box as this in a while. The top, sides and bottom of the case are in very good condition. No warping, splits or repairs that we can ascertain. Beautiful Rosewood Case with an inlaid design on the top and front of this large case. The inlay design on the top is of two horns and other items. The front inlay design is of a flute and a mandolin. There is some inlay and veneer loss to the case. Look closely at the pics. The wood legs are still in place. The black enamel paint is in place with some loss where the wood is not left in its natural state. The underside board of the case does have a split in it. The glass in intact on the inner door over the movement, no cracking or blistering. The glass does have a wavy look to it when viewed from the side. The top is securely attached to the rest of the case by the hinges. The music box dates to the 1880s. The brass movement was made in Switzerland. The serial number on the card matches up with the serial number on the movement, which is “28440″. There is a tear in the music card that emanates from the left side. This music box plays 12 tunes or airs. The music box appears to have been well maintained over the years. The 13 long pin cylinder shows little loss of finish. There are approximately 61 teeth on the comb and all the teeth are in place. The wind mechanism of the movement works as expected and the wind spring feels sound when keyed. The catch ratchet securely holds a wind on the movement as well. The music box also has 5 decorative nickel plated bells and a drum that provide further realism to the music box sound. One of the strike hammers for the bells is not operating and needs reattaching or repair. The rest of the strike hammers on the bells and on the drum operate as expected. The two levers that allow the drums or bells to be turned off and just play the pin cylinder work as expected. The brass lock and decorative brass keyhole plate are still with the music box. There is no key. The case is in just amazing condition. No cracks, splits or missing pieces. The top of the case sits down evenly on the base and is firmly attached to the base by its’ hinges. No warping of the top going on with this music box which is a common malady that one comes across with these older boxes. So, very uncommon to find one in such great shape. The four legs are built into the sides of the case and all still look good. All the inside separator boards between the compartments are in place as well. The comb is in excellent condition. All the approximately 61 teeth are in place, and we see no past repairs to any of the teeth. The nickel plated finish on the comb shows some finish loss. The pin cylinder looks to be in very nice shape finish wise. Cannot say if any of the pins are bent or missing. The music box tunes sound great when the music box is played, so sounds like the pins are all hitting the comb teeth as expected. This music box can certainly can use some refurbishing both case and music movement wise. The stop and start selector button works on the music box, as does the replay/change selector. The music box case is 12-13/16″ tall, by 25-9/16″ across, by 15-1/16 wide. The brass pin roller is 13 across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.

Antique Cylinder Music Box / Bells Drum Zither



Antique Cylinder Music Box / Bells Drum – Zither. Pretty nice antique cylinder music box with 6 tuned saucer bells drum and zither attachment. This is a 8 tune box in nice playing condition, this was restored about 30 years ago and has seen limited use since then. Cylinder all looks good, I did not see any bent pins, Comb is good no teeth or tips missing and none have have been repaired. Cylinder measures approximately 13 (only the pinned cylinder part). The bee strikers as I remember are not original it had plain balls and when restored the bee’s were added. I do not recognize the tunes (the tune sheet is a blank replacement) but all eight are nice waltzes and I think they also call them 2 step tunes. My only complaint is it seems to run a little fast if you wind it tightly so I only crank it 4-5 times more than enough to play several tunes. One thing I just noticed there is no geneva winding stop on the spring barrel. These were quite often removed. The case is not perfect and showing its age. It displays nicely but has issues, not bad but the case is not mint. The lid has had 2 repairs above and below the center inlay. On the front of the box the pinstripe inlay on the left side some is missing. Small sliver of wood missing on front left foot edge. On the left end of the case is slight warping causing a small separation to the front and back corners. And wear and small dings to the faux gaining of the case. Box closed measures approximately 23 wide by 12-1/2 deep by 10 high. Listing and template services provided by inkFrog.
