 898: Symponion, c. 1900

 


Antique Dancing Pigs Musical Automaton by Smyphonion, Germany, c. 1900


SOLD


A very scarce, amusing and unusual music box by Symphonion featuring a group of dancing pigs.

When the music is turned on, the three baby pigs dance a jig while the mother pig and another baby beat on the drum. The pigs are in great condition and move well. The case is in original condition with some losses to the paper surrounding the stage, but all commensurate with its age.

The movement plays 5 3/4” / 14.5cm discs and is in good working order, with just one treble tooth missing.

It comes with six discs, and is a highly collectable little music box.
