Antique chautauqua roller organ: patented in 1887. This listing is for a music box patented in 1887: chautauqua roller organ and one cob of music. The case or box is wood, i believe either oak or mahogany. The glass is in unbroken condition. The door easily swings up to open, exposing the inner workings of the organ.. There also is a door at the top rear that opens to reveal the directions for the organ. All hardware looks original. There is a damp stain on the directions as noted in photo above.
