The Imperial was a product of the B. H. Abrahams Company, a Swiss firm selling to the British market. This small size and smoking cabinet format is typical of the company's production. The music box probably dates around 1900. This machine is in working condition with manual start/stop and speed control. The music box is unrestored and would be a great, simple project. The comb is all original with a rust spot on three teeth and one broken tooth on the comb. With four original steel discs. Look at the photos, request the video or a personal audition by phone, and picture this lovely item in your collection!
