Antique Bell and Drum Music Box by Paillard, c. 1890

SOLD

A nice and compact antique music box with bells and drum made by Paillard of st Croix, Switzerland in c. 1890.

The musical movement features 6 engraved bells, 3 of which have bird strikers, as well as a drum with 8 beaters.

This music box plays a selection of 8 popular tunes with a jolly and pleasant sound, as detailed on the original tunesheet. There are some old repairs to the comb but it is all in tune and sounds good, and has some very agreeable arrangements to the tunes.

This all sits inside an inlaid rosewood case with an inlay to the lid and tulipwood banding.
