REUGE Swiss Music Box Hand tooled 50 lames, 10 airs interchangeable music box
Interchangeable 50 lames, 10 airs. Reuge Music Boxes are works of art, iconic gifts. Reuge has been crafting luxurious Music Boxes since 1865. How does a Music Box work? These musical instruments function in an astounding way with mechanically wound power turning a cylinder. The cylinder has hand inserted pins which then pluck the teeth of a comb. This comb is mounted on a sound box which amplifies the vibrations created so clearly, that it becomes a note. As the pins pluck teeth of differing lengths at pre-determined intervals at a steady tempo, the notes flow into a melody and we have music! This interchangeable music box features the following melodies with 5 cylinders. Fur Elise/Beethoven Eine Kleine Nachtmusik/Mozart. The Blue Danube/Strauss Tales From the Vienna Woods/Strauss. 18th Varition on a theme of paganini/Rachmaninov. All cylinders have been tested and are functioning beautifully. This gorgeous wooden box is in great shape.
There are a few minor discolorations to some of the cylinders, that do not effect usage. Item comes in original box.
