 1126: Dawkins, c. 1885

 


Petite Buffet Style Antique Music Box by Dawkins, c. 1885

SOLD

A very nice small-sized antique Buffet music box made by Dawkins of Geneva in c. 1885.

The fully refurbished movement plays a selection of 8 popular tunes with a very nice sound, including The Gay Parisienne and The Blue Bells of Scotland. The movement bears the Dawkins stamp on the governor, and sits behind a glass dust door.

The tunes are detailed on the replacement tunesheet inside one of the outer doors. The case is rosewood with tulipwood stringing to the front, top and sides, and with musical inalys to both doors.

A most attractive music box thanks to its compact size.
