A 19th century circa 1870’s swiss made cylinder music box. A large one in a beautiful original wooden case with inlay banding around it and a musical picture painted on the top with an instrument etc. It is an 8 tune or air box which can play 8 different songs. The songs are listed on the inside of the lid on the original paper label there. It has a 3 visible bell design. With just that 3 working bells on the inside. It has a crank handle on the left and on the right it has a stop and start switch as well as a switch which allows the cylindar to switch to different songs each time it’s makes a full rotation. Or can be set to play whatever song it is currently on over and over. It is in currently non working condition. The parts are all there as far as i an tell. And it wants to work. But from seeing and dealing with them in the past. I don’t think there is much to fix this one. It appears that all gears and parts are intact. The comb has all teeth. The bells look great. And all parts move. What is happening is this. When you swing the arm forward to wind it up. Instead of the cylinder staying still so you can wind the spring and put tention on it. The cylinder does not stay locked in place and it spins while you spin the wind arm. You can feel the spring start to tighten but then all of a sudden it lets loose and the cylinder spins fast releasing all the tension at once rather than at a slow pace so it can play music. It seams like there is a lock or a spring somewhere on it that needs repair or fixing to which holds the cylinder from freely spinning. But that’s what i think. For repair or sadly for parts. But again a professional most likely would know what the problem is and may be able to fix it easily. All other parts seam fine and work as intended. The arm for stopping and starting, the arm for changing the tunes works. As while spinning it adjusts the cylinder to the next tune and back to the beginning again. Now on to cosmetic condition. The metal parts inside show expected wear. The comb is great has all teeth. And everything looks original inside other than there is a bent nail holding the wind handle instead of a bolt or whatever was there originally. There is wear inside to the wood and some veneer loss inside the wood lid. Tearing to the paper label inside but mostly intact. The exterior of the box needs some work. The top is the worst, it has inlay missing, damage to the veneer and veneer loss. And wear to the label painted on the lid as well. The sides are pretty good. Some veneer loss and wear and minor inlay missing. One foot is missing. It has the original dark patina to the finish. 9″ tall by 18-1/2″ by 11.The item “RARE Antique 19thC SWISS 8 Tune Air 3 Visible Bells Cylinder Music Box Inlaid NR” is in sale since Wednesday, March 11, 2015.
