A moving van company would be ideal. I had hope to have it repaired and enjoy it, but with getting older and many old cars to get up and running, i’m going to concentrate on the cars.
Here’s what little i know about this item as far a what it needs to be restored: some teeth missing. 2 grab handles and metal bezels around the the key holes are missing, but i would think someone is reproducing these or get them from a parts music box. I turn the crank, but it does not whined up.
4 screws that hold the patented date tag are missing and a couple screws that cover the 2nd comb are missing. Really a “none factor” as far as missing screws. Someone stripped the finish on the cabinet.
Wood is very smooth and the wood grain is not raised or rough. Needs a new finish applied. I’ll let the new owner choose the type of varnish or wood oil to use. These are the items that i see that need attention. Be sure to look at all 22 photo’s.
I’ll be glad to answer any questions thanks last pat. 29″ wide by 21″ deep and 38 1/2 tall with wheels on the bottom. You get 2 disc with it.
A great chance for the handy man to own one of these rare items, or have someone fix it for you. I have no idea what its worth. Once it’s gone, it’s gone forever! Please do not confuse my low starting prices with quality! Thanks for looking and i hope you’re a winner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was looking in a book about music boxes and i didn’t realize that other music box companies use metal disc like this with hosles in them, adler, britannia, capitol, criterion, edelweiss, kalliope, comet, lochman, mira, monopol, olympia, polyphone, regina, symphonion, troubour.
