 1157: George Bendon, c. 1875

 


Antique 9 Engraved Bells Music Box by George Bendon, c. 1875

SOLD

A very nice quality and great-sounding antique music box with 9 engraved bells made by George Bendon of Geneva in c. 1875.

The movement features 9 beautifully engraved bells and a two-part comb, and plays a selection of 8 popular airs as detailed on the original George Bendon tunesheet. The lever is stamped with the serial number 27631.

This is all housed inside a very elegant burr walnut case with kingwood banding. This music box has recently come from a private collection in the UK and is in excellent original condition.

The sound, as you can hopefully hear from the video, is superb.
