This Polyphon "Mikado" is the creme de la creme of European disc music boxes. This example comes from Strasbourg (then Germany, now France). Playing 24-1/2 inch Polyphon discs (10 come with this player), the music is loud, rich and spectacular. Fully restored mechanism and original condition walnut cabinet with only minor nicks and bumps acquired over the past 100+ years, this music box is a rare and highly sought example of a grand upright instrument.
