Swiss 15 1/2″ Forte Piano Cylinder Music Box Playing Eight Tunes

This Swiss 15 1/2″ cylinder music box plays eight tunes. It comes in a walnut case with inlaid floral and scroll work marquetry on the lid. The underside of the lid also has two mirrors and the original tune card. The tune card is preserved behind glass.

Finally, the music box utilizes an early key wind movement with forte piano tuning on two combs. This rare split comb movement mimics the soft and loud notes expressed while playing a piano.

This restored music box comes with a one year warranty.
