Full Description

The 18.5" New Century music box was made by a combination of Swiss and American manufacturers. The mechanisms were imported from Switzerland as parts to avoid the high import duties on completed music boxes. Symphonion Manufacturing in New Jersey installed the mechanisms into USA made cases. This example is a rare format of disc music box called a "Disc-Shifter". It plays LONG MELODIES by shifting the center point after one revolution to play a second revolution of the disc and produce a complete rendition of the music. Fully restored and refinished. 26"x24"x13" With 18 original tune discs. Serial No. 3285
