9 Bell Antique Music Box by Bremond, c. 1865
A nice quality antique music box by BA Bremond of Geneva, Switzerland, playing 8 operatic airs.
The movement features 9 intricately engraved bells which can be engaged and disengaged at will. The music box plays a lovely selection of operatic music, including Beethoven's Fidelio and The Carnival of Venice. The sound is nice and lively, in keeping with the striking bell section, and the tunesheet is original.
The case is inlaid rosewood with floral inlays to both the front and lid, along with kingwood crossbanding.
