We have not come across such a beautiful music box as this in a long time. Beautiful wood case with great marquetry detailing. Made by the Reuge Music Company ofSaint-Croixe, Switzerland.
Very small scratch on top which probably can be rubbed out. The top is securely attached to the base by the hinges. Same with the interior door over the movement that is mostly glass. The glass is intact no cracking or blistering.The pin cylinders are done in a beautiful gold colored lacquer. The top, sides and bottom of the case are in very good condition with the noted exception of the small scratch on the lid. Beautiful Rosewood Case with an inlaid rectangular design on the top of this large case.
Look closely at the pics. The wood legs are still in place and only need new felt. The glass in intact on the inner door over the movement, no cracking or blistering.
The top is securely attached to the rest of the case by the hinges. The song sheet is etched on a mirrored piece of glass on the inside of the top of the case. The music box dates to the 1970s to 1980s. The brass movement was made in Switzerland.
The music box plays 10 different tunes, two on each cylinder. The music box has been well maintained over the years. The 2.75 long pin cylinder shows little to no loss of finish. The wind mechanism of the movement works as expected and the wind spring feels sound when keyed. The case of the music box is in just amazing condition.
No cracks, splits or missing pieces. The top of the case sits down evenly on the base and is firmly attached to the base by its' hinges. No warping of the top. The four legs are in place on the case, need new green felt on their bottoms. The song board is done on a mirrored piece of glass on the inside of the top.The comb is in excellent condition. All the approximately 50 teeth are in place. The gold colored plated finish on the combshows little to no finish loss. The pin cylinder looks to be in very nice shape finish wise.
The music box tunes sound great when the music box is played, so sounds like the pins are all hitting the comb teeth as expected. Thestart selector button works very well on the music box. The music box case is 5" tall, by17" across, by 8 wide.
The brass pin roller is 2.75 across, pin cylinder body only. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures. Dont be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions.
