1172 : Conchon (?), c. 1875
Antique Swiss Music Box with Cloche Bells, possibly by Conchon, c. 1875
A fine quality antique Swiss music box possibly made by Conchon of Geneva, Switzerland in c. 1875.
The fully restored movement features 6 unusual cloche-shaped engraved bells and plays a selection of 10 mainly operatic tunes, including the Zampa overture.
The case is rosewood with musical marquetry inlay on the lid and front, together with tulipwood banding and boxwood stringing on the lid, front and sides.
The sound is great, and it is all in perfect condition: a really beautiful music box.
