Description

This incredible Swiss Music Box dates from 1880 and is in stunning condition.

These are very rare to find in New Zealand as not may found their way here and few survived. This example is in stunning original condition and has always been cherished.

The case is immaculate, in as new condition with a beautiful deep shine. The body is Walnut and it is decorated with satin wood string inlay. Overall it measures 43 cm long 20 cm deep and 12.5 cm high. It is complete with its original key as pictured.

On the opening lid is a beautiful flower decoration. Open the lid and inside are the controls and amazing Swiss Engineering of the music box.

This is a high quality example with a large rube bearing on the butterfly wheel. The comb is perfect as are all the pins on the drum.

The movement is protected under a glass viewing window which can be lifted by a leather tab.

The movement has always been well maintained so the music box plays perfectly having a wonderful rich sound that is beautiful to listen to.

I believe this model plays 4 different tunes or Airs as they are called. The main spring is wound with a lever type mechanism. The black colour inside the case is perfect and showcases the bras movement wonderfully.

If you have ever wanted to own one of these amazing machines then here is your chance. Very rarely available this beautiful example is listed with just a dollar reserve!
