Description

Okay, so it has been visited by woodworm (thoroughly exterminated), and there is a mechanical issue with the spring tensioning; however, the barrel is complete, and the comb remains intact; and when gently rotated there is wonderful tone and complexity of music.

This is a project for a new owner, but one that is achievable and definitely worth it for the joy of owning such a magical item (and for the financial reward), in working condition, these music boxes can be worth thousands!
