Greetings, if you’re reading this you probably already know more about this amazing machine than I do. The instrument plays well. The box is 17″ by 7 1/2″ by 5 1/2 tall, it weighs close to 18 pounds. The solid lacquered case features fine marquetry on the top and front. The inside of the top features the original song title label, mostly intact. On the right is a STOP PLAY lever that works, above it is a CHANGE REPEAT lever that works. On the left side is the wonderful ratchet crank winding lever. There are several matching numbers on the mechanism. 75816 appears on the end of the cylinder, the winding drum lever and the winding drum as well as on one of the cylinder bosses. 62 appears on the winding drum gear, the crank handle and on the end of the cylinder. Inside the mechanism chamber there is some dust and on the end of the comb a very small amount of light discoloration, there is no rust visible. The nickel looks to 99+%. The bat wings on the air brake are adjustable, I suspect so as to adjust the speed of play. The top mount of the air brake shaft has a red pivot bearing, perhaps a ruby? There is a lever next to the air brake who’s purpose is unclear. The zithre controls works appropriately and serves to mute the sound. There is a nickeled shield in the back with the numbers 1-6. Both this shield and the harp that holds the zither have a blue and white woven cloth backing. All teeth are present on the comb and there does not appear to be any pins missing from the 8 1/2 cylinder. The cylinder shift to the right at the end of the songs. There are minor paint chips to the inner compartment and the box itself shows only the very least amount of expected wear to a 125 year old music box. Note the last photo, there may be an old repair to the banding on the right side of the cover. The key is not present. This will require professional packing so as to protect it in transit. Offered With NO RESERVE. Be Sure To Take A Look At My Other Steam. Brass, Early Mechanical & Various Oddities. My packing store closes Saturday at 12 noon and is closed on Sunday.
