Music box Symphonion Antique 1880

£400

Rare Antique Symphonion Music Box:

An antique Symphonion Music Box in a wooden case with 9 discs. All the teeth were intact with the original key, one tooth from the wheel looks like it needs a replacement
The disc played well (please see video) and when I tried to wind it again it was full.
Probably 1880, German. The item would need a service from a clock repairer/horologist.
The sound from the music box is gorgeous and loud. It could easily fill a large room or even a big hall with its
sound without any amplification! I have heard from a few of these before, but this one tops them all. Please see all pictures as these form part of the description.
Overseas buyers please contact for postage charges.

The discs are 7.5 inches in diameter. Just the discs which are in excellent condition are a valuable collection alone.
Please note during a recent windup, the key went all the way to full and did not play, I did not continue and left it as it needs some repair so it is sold only as a decorative item.
The original key and discs are all intact. This would be a valuable addition for a collector. The 9 discs alone are worth over £300 to £400 on their own. Due to the present condition, I am willing to accept this lower price of £400.00

Box size 27 x 23 x 16 cm height
