The Regina Music Box Company of Rahway, New Jersey, held international prestige from the mid-1880s to the advent of the phonograph in the early 20th century. The company quickly gained tremendous popularity, producing some of the most beautifully crafted and finest-sounding machines of the era. Automatic changers were among the most impressive, but due to their incredibly high cost, few could afford music boxes of this caliber. An extremely limited number of automatic disc changers were ever created, making them amongst the rarest Regina machines to acquire today.
Regina boxes remain the most versatile and desirable music boxes to own today. Countless antique discs remain in circulation today, joined by over a thousand titles available on new discs and custom disc options, giving listeners a near-limitless selection of music!
This beautiful automatic changer bears a complete restoration and carries a one-year warranty.
