878 : Polyphon Mikado, c. 1898

Antique Polyphon Mikado Upright Disc Music Box, c. 1898


A beautiful and magnificent Polyphon Mikado upright antique disc music box with a lovely walnut case playing 24 1/2" discs. The case is all original except for a very high quality replacement pediment. The movement has been fully overhauled to put it in excellent condition. 

This machine is operated by a single small coin - what would have been the old 10 pfennig, although a new English penny works perfectly. 

As always with a Mikado, the sound is quite simply the best you can get. A really fantastic music box. Comes with 12 discs.

Width: 31" / 84cm
Height: 89” / 225cm
Depth: 21” / 53cm
