 1208: Ducommun Girod, c. 1875

 


Antique 6 Bell Music Box by Ducommun Girod, c. 1875

A nice, bright-sounding antique music box made by Ducommun Girod of Geneva, Switzerland in c. 1875.

The movement has been fully serviced and features 6 bells struck by birds-in-flight strikers, and plays 6 tunes including ‘Blue Danube’, ‘La Donna e Mobile’ from Rigoletto, and Offenbach’s ‘La Perichole’ (featured in the video), as detailed on the replacement tunesheet.

This is housed in a magnificent inlaid rosewood case with beautiful motifs to the lid and front as well as chequered borders and inlays to the sides.

The size is also compact, making this a very agreeable antique music box.
