This box is in pristine condition inside and out and would be ideal to present to someone as a very special gift. Such a luxurious item would, I'm sure be cherished by the recipient for many years to come. Still in the original box, this piece also comes with the original Reuge polishing cloth/storage bag.
Everything included here is immaculate. The mechanism is in excellent working order and plays beautifully. It is one of the larger Reuge examples and has a 72 note comb, which is used to full effect.To start the music box, there is a brass control switch to the front. Moving the switch to the right will start the music and it will play continuously until the button is shifted back to the left again. The case is in excellent condition and has an inner glass lid to prevent dust gathering on the mechanism. There is some wonderful inlay work to the lid and the overall finish to the case is exceptional. The music is played to perfection. Clear, crisp notes ring out in faultless succession, Not one squeak can be heard. The musical programme features a Mozart extravaganza, including the Magic flute, which happens to be a personal favourite of mine. Please see below to watch a video of the music box playing and remember, Musical boxes always sound far richer in person. Video clips never do them justice! Reuge 3 72 W A Mozart - YouTube.
