Antique 7 Bell Music Box by L’Epee, c. 1870
A charming and fantastic sounding antique cylinder music box made by L’Epee in France in c. 1870.
The musical movement features seven saucer bells and plays a selection of 6 tunes as detailed on the original tunesheet mounted to the inside of the lid.
The sound is particularly good, with a wonderful arrangement of the tunes and a bright, clear quality to the music.
It is housed within a case with a delicate rosewood inlay to the lid.
The movement was serviced approximately 20 years ago, while the case has been recently restored.
A characterful and utterly charming music box.
