Antique Interchangeable Music Box by Paillard, c. 1880
A fine quality interchangeable antique music box made by Paillard of St Croix, Switzerland, in c. 1880.
The fully serviced musical movement has a harp piccolo arrangement which gives this music box a beautifully mellow sound, and it comes with 6 cylinders, each playing 6 mainly operatic tunes, which are stored in the drawers of the matching table. The movement also has a double spring for longer running time and a zither bar.
The case is lush burr walnut with tulipwood inlay and gild bronze carrying handles.
