Full Description

Most 11" Polyphon music boxes were made as single comb movements that were housed in simple flat sided paint grained wooden boxes. This Polyphon is a rare exception to most of the music boxes of the 11" disc size that were produced. Made around 1900, this Polyphon is housed in a Deluxe walnut veneered Serpentine case. Even more unusual is the Duplex comb (2 teeth are sounded for each note on the music disc) music movement that has been restored to like-new condition. The tone is superb and has the sound quality of the much larger 15.5" models. With 10 tune discs.
