Unique Reuge 3/72 Swiss Chalet Music Box, One Owner, Like New with Reuge Box. Most all chalet music boxes have 18 notes. Much research produced just two that are larger, one 2/36 and one 4/50, but no 72 note let alone a 3/72. Thus this large Swiss Chalet (about 12" wide, 7" deep, and 6 1/4 high), made entirely in Switzerland, might be one-of-a-kind.
I bought it in a jewelry store in Geneva, Switzerland in 1987. The movement is also excellent and smoothly plays three lively Swiss tunes that make good use of the 72 note comb and the more than 1,000 pins on the cylinder.Push a button on the side of the chalet and be instantly cheerful. One complete tune is played at each push of the button. Plays 9 or more times between moderate windings. The quality of the sound is wonderful. You can listen while viewing a video.
