Listing for:
Near mint condition early Regina 15-1/2" music box with duplex combs and superb mahogany case.


This Regina looks like it came straight out of the catalog! Original cabinet and mechanism... even the original key in the lock! The music is clear, loud, and sweet!

 


We didn't even touch the marvelous patina on the double combs. No broken teeth or tips ever -- but we have completely adjusted the musical mechanism and lubricated the motor. This box is ready to go for another 100 years!

 


The lid is normally where you would expect to see the dings, scrapes, rings, and drippings. Not on this Regina! Truly a find in this day and age and you are not likely to find many others in this fine, original condition!

 

This Regina is in extraordinary condition! This is a Style 11, double comb player, and is very early production from the Regina factory. Made in Rahway, New Jersey circa 1897, this music box plays with a clear tone and resonates music long after the disc stops turning! The cabinet is mahogany, missing no molding, with no scratches or alligatoring anywhere on the cabinet! Mechanically all original, with original crank and lid print, and even the original key in the lock! We acquired this music box from the second owner -- a furniture mover who carried out of the home of the first owner in Sausalito, California. Complete with 10 original steel discs! This music box is a superb value and is a museum-quality piece. Please contact us for information about a MATCHING ORIGINAL base cabinet available with this music box, or a MATCHING Victorian table on which to place the Regina.
