Also no potential risk of damage during transport. I posted a video on you tube for your viewing pleasure for an up close look and most importantly, an audible example of how it sounds. I strongly urge and highly recommend you to spend a few minutes and view them as it will more than likely answer any and all the questions you may have. The box does in fact function and sounds off with relatively good tone and clarity, the playing combs are in very good condition with one exception, a single tooth tip is missing and needs to be replaced and perhaps a damper or two, thats it. The bellow assembly does function with some slightly diminished power and sound, the last time I looked at it, it appeared to need some fresh leather re covering. However, all the reeds sound off and the reed assembly is complete and functioning as expected. I believe the box was mfg by a company called Greiner, later known as B. The previous owner informed me that he had some bellow work done and a signature was found, Joseph Bornand, New York, c/o Ambers, 1893, he also forwarded a picture of it to me as well, If you would like to see it, please make a request and I will send it to you. The previous owner also informed me that one of the combs was also engraved Greiner on the bottom, I have not confirmed that, Just forwarding the info to you. Apparently, the Bornand name is of some stature and relevance in the music box world, design patents, notable collections in New York and a daughter in law that once served as President or vice president of the MBSI apparently. There is just too much info to convey, please just take a few minutes of your time and watch the video, it will answer all your questions Im sure. Any questions, fire away, happy to help and Thank you again for your time, I really do appreciate it, best to you and your family, take care.
