C19th cylinder music box in oak case. Made in Switzerland by Mermod Freres, with Jacot Safety Check. Hinged glass top in perfect condition. Includes hand crank and key. There is a hand written program of 12 songs with a fold but whole. Corners are torn where it’s come loose from the nails used to attach it to the inside lid, original nails still intact. There is a stop/play control, speed control, song selection and switch to repeat or play next song. Mechanics work and it plays wonderfully. I made a video of it turning on, playing at both speeds, and stopping. Message me and I’ll provide a link. The box shows wear from 130+ years but no cracks. There’s a chunk of wood missing where the front right foot is attached, see picture. Otherwise no major damage. The box measures 28″ x 10.75″ x 7.5 and weighs over 40lbs.
