Antique/Vintage Music Box with 2 Tune 50 Note Reuge Movement
This music box dates from the late 19th century and originally played
six tunes according to the label. However the original movement has
been replaced at some point with a later 2 tune 50 note Reuge
mechanism. We've seen this done before where the old movement has
been either used for something else or was too costly to repair, so a
replacement has been fitted instead. In this case the replacement is
very nice & sounds wonderful. It does only play 2 tunes instead
of the listed six, but we think you'll agree they are a beautiful
sounding polka & waltz melodies & really suit the box well.
Box - 19th century, looks it's age with expected wear &
tear, but overall good with nice patina.
Movement - Excellent. Movement in perfect working order,
almost as new condition.
Guarantee on Vintage items - The movement will be guaranteed
for 1 year as per any of our new boxes.
