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.

Absolutely stunning and beautiful large Swiss music box. This box retains 99% of it’s original finish and all of it’s original inlay. The case measures 25 at it’s widest point. Depth of case 11. Height of case, roughly 7.5. The lid is domed, and in great condition. The case is in great condition with no significant damage. The case looks extremely good for an antique that is over 100 years old. There are some very tiny insignificant blemishes here and there, but they are hardly worth noting. The pictures say it all. The inside of the lid retains it’s beautiful burled wood finish. The cast bronze handles are original. I do not have the key for the lock. The leather straps for lifting the glass lid appear to be original and have patina around the metal tacks that hold them in place under the glass lid frame. The mechanism has a 11 long cylinder and plays 10 tunes. All the 10 tunes play with equal brightness and clarity. The 63 note comb has no damage and has never had any repair work to any of the teeth. All of the original dampers are present and working. The cylinder pins are all in great shape and none appear bent or out of place. This mechanism has an indicator to tell which tune is being played, from 1 to 10. The comb has a zither attachment which works when activated. It makes the music sound like a banjo, or mandolin. The mechanism starts and stops reliably and quietly. This box has always been well looked after. Serial number written on the bottom of the case matches the number stamped on the musical mechanism. I’ve never seen a box with such beautiful inlay. This would be the center piece to any collection. Don’t go by what is automatically listed, it is not correct. Thanks for your understanding. I have tried my best to describe this box’s condition as honestly as possible. I can provide additional photos if you are interested. This video was made on my iphone and doesn’t truly represent how nice and rich this box sounds in person. This music box will be double boxed, wound completely down, with cylinder at end of tune, governor secured, and all the needed attention for it’s safe transit. It must be insured for safe travel to your location. Thanks for looking and good luck! PLEASE NOTE I have been informed that the tunes in my video do NOT match the tunes on the tune card. I knew the card was a new replacement when I acquired this box so I’m not surprised.
