Huge walnut Victorian Polyphon music box, 19th century, triple comb, playing 24 1/2" discs. This rare find is just beautiful, with the original music box standing on its original base which holds the discs. The whole thing is just under eight feet tall. It is marked with a #8976, is coin operated to take 5 Pfenning and is marked Th. Briese Vormals J.Eckhardt, Uhren & Musikwerke, Frankfurt, a Main. The top piece (the music box) measures 48" tall x 30 1/2" wide x 15 1/2" deep. The bottom (the disc holder) measures 37" tall x 32 1/2" wide x 18" deep. This cabinet opens with compartments for the discs. There are 14 discs included with this. It is in beautiful original condition, and plays beautifully although could use a good cleaning. We are not experienced enough to to do this by ourselves.
