1165 : Swiss, c. 1865
Antique Music Box with 6 Engraved Bells, Swiss, c. 1860
A very nice antique music box with 6 beautifully engraved bells, made in Switzerland in c. 1860.
This music box plays 6 operatic tunes as listed on the original tunesheet with a nice sound. The case is also nice and slightly unusual, with fine quality fretwork corners to the interior dust lid.
The exterior of the case is veneered in rosewood with two contrasting inlays, one to the lid and another to the front.
This makes for a rather individual and characterful music box by an unknown but nevertheless high quality maker.
