This original vintage music box plays like new. For 140 years of age this piece is in beautiful condition and was one of my mother’s favorite pieces. The development of Symphonion disc music boxes made tunes easy to add and relatively inexpensive, as well as making good music boxes more affordable. Symphonion (or Kalliope) boxes were originally made in Leipzig, Germany during the late 1880’s. They were destined to become some of the greatest music boxes ever known. They were designed to accept individual tune discs, allowing one music box to play many tunes. Mechanism is in excellent working condition. Lid has beautiful decorations. See photos for detail condition of box. Comes with one disc. (16 discs in original container also available separately).
