Antiques, Fine Art & Collectibles. Antique Victorian Swiss Tabletop Music Box Hand Crank Harmony 6 Tunes 1870s 90s. DESCRIPTION Antique Victorian Swiss tabletop music box. Dating to the 1870's-90's period this multi tune player music box is also equipped with a tempo control and tune changer allowing the listener to choose a desired selection. Inlaid on the front and the top this stunning Victorian duke box was the epitome of modernism and style in any wealthy household in the late 19th century.
Works well with one of the tines missing on the left hand side outside edge. Paper label lists the 6 airs on the comb. This would make a great addition to any late Victorian music box collection.
This would make a great early holiday gift. MEASUREMENTS Music box measures 15" wide by 6.5" deep by 4.5 tall and it weighs 12lbs 6oz. CONDITION In good working condition with the repeat and change options working well yet signs of use throughout. One of the end tines is missing which must in some way affect the tunes being played but it is indecipherable on the comb. There is some scuffing and dents throughout from age and there is a working key with it which requires the lid to be pushed down hard to lock it in place (please see all pictures as they form part of the condition description).
