RARE & UNUSUAL SWISS MUSIC BOX with BELLS & DANCING DOLLS AUTOMATON



SWISS INTERCHANGEABLE-CYLINDER MUSIC BOX. Made in Switzerland c. 1885, with the maker attributed to Ami Rivenc of Geneva. To begin with, the music box has six (6) interchangeable cylinders. Each cylinder is 14″ long x 2.5″ diameter. They are housed in a unique sliding chamber at the rear, accessible from either side. Accompanying the sweet music are six (6) engraved and tuned saucer bells, each struck by a gilded bird striker. The combs are perfect, with no broken teeth or tips. There is an engraved “zither” over the combs for tone control, and an on-off switch for the bells. For a delightful visual effect, the maker added two dancing dolls, one on either side of the music box, each of which pirouettes on her feet, seemingly to the beat of the music. All of this is house in a unique “davenport” desk style cabinet, measuring 33″ wide x 16″ deep x 42″ high (music box closed) and 54″ high (open). As you can see from the pictures, the condition is wonderful, and we can attest that the sound is excellent.

ANTIQUE MUSIC BOX WITH 7 ROLLERS UNUSUAL CONFIGURATION ORGANETTE. This unique music box is fresh from a local attic. This is designed like cylinder roller organ, but it has perforated rolls like a player piano. It is in good overall working condition. The major issue is that I believe the bellows must be repaired. When I play it the sound is just fair. There is a small piece of wood chipped of the front edge of the lid. There are seven rolls with the box. I don’t see a manufactures name any place. It measures 15.5″ long by 11.5″ deep by 9.5 tall. Call if you need more information. I DO NOT END MY AUCTIONS EARLY.

Offered is an antique cylinder music box, estate fresh, working perfectly, in desperate need of a case refinishing. The comb shows surface discoloration but is in perfect condition with no broken teeth. From my little research on the net this box might, in fact, be a rare model with its 7.5 long X 2.75 diameter cylinder playing an amazing 20 tunes! Case appears to be rosewood, 24 long X 10.5deep X 7 high, and should refinish wonderfully as the box is basically in sound condition, free of crack and/or splits. The top originally had a decal which is all but gone which also lends itself to a nice refinishing along with the fact that 98% of the line inlay on top and front is intact. Two additional pictures show after my description. Non-guaranteed funds could take longer.

Antique Unusual Musical Junghans Vienna Regulator Wall Clock, Box, Works Great


Antique Unusual Musical Junghans Vienna Regulator Wall Clock, Box, Works Great. This is I believe a Small German Junghans Vienna Regulator Wall Clock with a very unique musical chime It plays a tunes on the hour I do not know the name of the tunes it is playing. I believe it is also playing more than one tune and they seem to play about 12 seconds it does this on the hour only. It has 36 tooth musical comb the 5 dial is painted metal darkened with age tiny finish loss around the screws. When it gets to the hour it really does sound wonderful because it is so different at first you go whats that oh the clock!!! There was two levelers on the back one is missing it’s screw the other is broken so it needs leveler, I have it running fine with no levelers!! There was a piece of cardboard with writing on it about the clock it has probably made by Junghans Germany on it. It is not signed on the front of the movement and I really do not want to pull it to find out if the back is signed because it runs well and I’m not sure how the musical pieces are set up to work. I have never seen anything like this it’s a first for me the paper on it has 1906 and the way it looks I believe that is correct. The pendulum and the movement appear to be all original I’m assuming the glass is also but I’m not 100% sure on the glass. It has a great Eagle on top I’m not sure if it is original but it looks fantastic. The case is solid and I see no damage on any glass. It is about 25″ tall from bottom finial to top of Eagle it is 9 7/8″ wide 5 3/4 deep it weighs 6.7.5 pounds. If you like uniquely different clocks this truly fits into that category and it works very good it has been running and playing music on my all for about 8 hours now with no problems. The bottom finial was not in properly I did not notice this till after the pictures were taken it does fit properly. Also a few pictures of the movement were taken before the case was cleaned up a bit you can see dust that is no longer there! Thank you for your interest. In the case of a Holiday it may take a bit longer!!! But don’t expect to find anything remotely Victorian!! So please try to be somewhat kind because sadly it’s really easy to hurt us with those star ratings!! I Do Also Except E-Check!!! The absence of a condition statement on effects of normal aging does not imply that the item is in like new condition or completely free from wear and tear, small imperfections or the effects of aging is present in 99% of all antique and vintage collectible items. I SELL VERY ECLECTIC MIX OF FINE QUALITY LIGHTING MOSTLY OIL LAMPS BUT ALSO CLOCKS!! I CHECK THEM OUT WELL AND TRY TO EXPLAIN THEM AS BEST THAT I CAN, PLEASE LOOK AT THE PICTURES WELL!!! SO IF YOU ARE NOT SURE PLEASE PASS ME BY THERE ARE OTHER LAMPS OUT THERE!! I’M SORRY TO HAVE TO ADD THIS POLICY BUT I’M SURE TRUE LAMP LOVERS WILL UNDERSTAND MY REASONING ON THIS ONE!!

No idea of age-value & what exactly kind of box it is. This is a very heavy, maybe 10/15 pounds? It is very ornate looking. There are pictures on it and words inside that appear to be religious in nature. The bottom has some metal showing thru -at lease that’s what i believe it to be. Size is aprox 7 3/4 x aprox 3 3/4. No idea of aprox age. Stands aprox 3 3/4 inches in height. Do not know if it is original or a reproduction, but it does appear to be old. The inside appears to be old as well and is wood inside of the metal. It is a music box, works.

Check out our other vintage watch, jewelry, sterling & estate. Swiss music box in handmade walnut box. Comes with appraisal from christie’s. It appears christie’s may have been being “polite” by responding to the appraisal inquiry. Also included are the original 1974, $470 receipt, and several letters regarding a prior repair from automated musical instruments. A high quality swiss music box movement rests in a handmade walnut box. The box does not appear to be the original case for the movement, and was likely made after the original case was broken. Although it may not be original, the case is contemporary to the movement. A paper label inside the box lid reads “6 airs – 6 stück”, with handwritten text below. The movement is running slow, and plays out of tune. Some of the tines appear to missing, and several are bent. The movement may need servicing in order to play correctly.
