This music box dates to the 1830s and is an early keywind example. Ducommun Girod was a high-end Swiss manufacturer, and this cartel style music box is a great piece. With exposed controls on the left side, this music box predates 95% of all cylinder music boxes, and is thus a rare artifact! Musically in nice condition, playing 4 tunes (original tune card present!) of the classical genre. Manufactured in the easrly 19th century, restored and retailed by Keith Harding in London in the 20th century, and ready for your collection in the 21st century.
