Full Description

The Style 54 Mikado was Polyphon's largest and most ornate upright glass front disc music box. The Mikado uses a large, long running spring motor that is coin-operated, a large English Penny works perfectly, to play 10-20 revolutions of the disc between windings. The music is produced by a double comb melody section and double comb piccolo section mounted on a short bedplate directly attached to the massive sound board. The sound performance is loud, rich and resonant. The walnut cabinet is in its original finish and shows some nicks and bumps from its earlier days of commercial use, and still has its operator's nameplate mounted above the glass door. Case separates into 2 sections for easy shipping. Dimensions - 89" x 33" x 21" With 10 clean original discs.
