The music it produces is excellent and it has a double comb type of arrangement with the lower comb covered by a decorative metal plate. This practice was discontinued after the first couple of years of production. Also, the cabinet has a storage drawer that is built into the unit where all 10 of the 15 1/2 disc can be hidden away below the mechanism. The lid print is original as well as the case finish. I have made a sound file of it playing for all to enjoy the music. These are very rare and predate the Regina Company by a year or two. It plays the Regina disc equally as well.

Just look at the beautiful wood cabinet.

It’s one of the rarer single comb model low serial number 1392. The coin mechanism works as it should missing none of its teeth in the comb. There is a video playing this very early Regina disc #1036 Wedding March and sounding very strong! Disc numbers start at 1001 for the very first disc. Only 35 different songs (discs) were made before this one being 36th of 11370 different songs discs were ever made over the years by the Regina Company!

For sale is this neat antique Gem Roller Organ, produced on December 7, 1896 with the May 31, 1887 patent date. This piece includes 16 cob rolls! The organ measures approximately 14″ wide by 8″ tall by 12 deep. Please see the pictures to evaluate the condition. We find this piece to be in very good condition for such an old antique. Most noteworthy, we believe there is an air leak in the bellows, probably caused by our retail customers trying to use this piece improperly. It was in excellent working condition just one month ago. We believe the leak can be sealed and this piece will work again. We believe all parts and pieces are original. It appears the wood has been re-painted and touched up. There is a small chip in the wood on the front as shown in the pictures. All of the mechanics are working properly, as the cobs turn and the keys move as expected. You can see the directions are still on the bottom with the dates as described above in the first sentence of the description! Overall, this is a very nice collectible.

The Gem Roller Organ 1887 Painted black with stunning gold stenciled applied designs, used teeth or pins embedded into a 20-note wooden roller, similar to the cylinders used in Swiss music boxes. Pins operated on valve keys while a gear turned the roller by use of the hand crank mechanism. The 19th century Cobb roller organ functions flawlessly, plays very loudly and looks fantastic. The all original stenciled graphics are all still vibrant and look great. There Is a bit of age related wear to the black paint here and there, but that Is the only flaw I can find with this wonderful old machine. It measures 16 inches long, 14 inches wide and 9 inches high. 1887 Paper label Is perfect and completely Intact on reverse. Absolutely no apologies and no disappointments with this old Gem Cobb roller organ. This Is an extremely nice example of this rare old machine. Just wanted to let our Interested buyers know I have a video of this amazing old machine In action up on YouTube. I tried adding It yesterday when I listed the organ with no luck! But If you would like to see and hear the old machine In action please send me a message and I’ll send you a link.

Early Antique Key wind Swiss French 6 Tune Music Box in Fruitwood Case ca1840


Just out of a local house is this nice early Swiss or French key wind music box. These were made during the early development of the modern day music box. They were made at a time with no electricity, in small workshops, and for the wealthy, not the masses. The early ones such as this example had plain cases and were key wound. Later music boxes had decorated cases and were lever wound. In the early 1800’s the Swiss created the music box industry and enjoyed a worldwide monopoly for many years. They produced magnificently engineered music boxes that are still playing today and providing great music as this one does about 170 years later. The music box has a fruitwood case with a drop down door on the side to expose 3 lever controls. One for start – stop, one for stop at end of tune – or continuous play, and the last for change tune – or repeat. It has the key wind opening above the levers. The box plays 6 tunes and measures about 17 3/8 inches wide, 4 7/8 inches high, and about 6 1/4 inches deep. The cylinder alone measures almost 11 inches. It has a low serial number of 522 but no makers marks on the works. It is also missing its tune sheet. The music box is in as found condition. It has 103 or 104 teeth with 2 broken, a split on the lid near the right back corner, and the works are quite dirty. It looks as someone had oiled it but it could use a good cleaning and servicing. It plays nicely and advances through all the tunes well but when we first turn it on we had to nudge the fan or butterfly to get it going, most likely because it needs a good cleaning. See photos as they are part of the description. Would make a nice addition to any collection and is guaranteed as described.

Very Early Antique L. Lecoultre Key Wound Cylinder Music Box S/n #5566 1830/40's


Here we have a very rare, very early, Swiss made, key wound, cylinder music box. The music box is in as found condition. It was manufactured by L. Lecoultre and has a serial number of 5566. The comb is marked L. Lecoultre in the center. Both the bottom of the wooden box and brass carriage near the governor are marked with matching numbers. This makes it one of the earliest that I have seen (late 1830’s/early 1840’s). The comb is fastened with non-slotted hardware. I believe it to possibly be a six aire box. The comb has 99 teeth with 5 teeth broken/missing. The largest broken one is still in the box under the brass carriage. The hinges that hold the lid have separated. The original winding key is included as well as some wood trim that has separated from the lid. The box measures 16-3/4″ long, 6-1/2″ wide, and 5 tall. The pictures tell the story and show the condition of the item. The item “VERY EARLY ANTIQUE L. LECOULTRE KEY WOUND CYLINDER MUSIC BOX S/N #5566 1830/40′S” is in sale since Saturday, October 29, 2016. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Decorative Collectibles\Music Boxes\Pre-1900″.
