This is an Antique Symphonion Music Box # 468167 (a sticker underneath still has this model number on it ) that's from around the late 1800's . It's in very good condition for something this old. It has a few minor surface scratches that could be removed if you choose to but it doesn't take anything away from this beautiful piece.

The sound is from a SINGLE COMB MECHANISM and all the teeth are intact. FOR IT'S AGE IT'S SOUNDS AMAZING !!! This was done on my phone and I'm a "novice" when it comes to this so pardon the backround noise.
Listen to it here at :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8z3Y8v4BtOY&feature=youtu.be

The inner workings have been professionally cleaned and inspected (nothing has been altered from it's original manufacture). It's been giving another hundred or so years to brighten up someone's life it it's cleaned condition. The outside of the box has been left "as is" out of fear of possibly damaging the paper lining inside of the lid.

It also comes with 10 original 8" metal disc that it all still play. The discs have some minor rust but they been lightly cleaned and they sound fine. There's such a rich sound that generates from the wood when it's played, just think of it as the CD players of the 1800's.

The disc's are in German so I'm not sure of the titles , but some of the lettering is still intact.
The dimensions are 9 x 11" across the top, and 6" high. The sticker inside is still pretty clean considering it's age except the tear from the wood split on outer top lid of the box . This is from the aging of the wood as it might have been kept in a dry climate at one time. The only damage to this music box is the nick on the wood in the right corner at the top of the box.

As with older items , I try and give as many details as I can but these are not brand new items and may show some signs of use. Please allow for this.
I will only ship this within the United States and only to the address on the Etsy buyers account .
INSURANCE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ON THIS ITEM AND CAN BE PURCHASED AT AN ADDITIONAL COST, JUST ASK.

Ask and questions and I'll try and reply ASAP and thanks for shopping my store,
