Regina automatic changer upright music box
Fabulous Regina automatic changer music box in a spectacular mahogany case. This machine has slots to hold twelve 15.5″ metal discs. When it finishes playing one disc it will upload the next. There is a round dial on the right side that can be used to choose the disc if you have a particular preference. Otherwise, the machine selects the next one in order. The serial number is #50555 (see photo) and there is a label on the inside of the door with a number of various patent dates – the last of which is 1899 (see photo). The double comb movement is in perfect condition. This machine has a marvelous sound. I would be happy to play it for you over the phone on request. Or, better yet, come see it in person if possible. The case has a wonderful crotch mahogany grain and has the typical bowed glass door, carved crest at the top and twist columns on each side. There is a curved disc storage drawer on the bottom of the case. The back is built just like the soundboard on a high quality piano. This music box comes with a total of twenty metal discs. Great condition and mechanically sound! Circa: 1900 Dimensions: 67.5″H x 27″W x 21″D Finish: Very nice original finish and patina with fabulous wood grain Price: $17,950.00
