Click to enlargeA very hard to find early serial number (16133)cylinder music box with nickel-plated zither. I haven't taken this one apart for final clues to maker but serial number places it at one of three manufacturers all pre-1882. Purchased at auction 20 years ago, kept in antique store (forgotten) since. I have only surface cleaned this 8" cylinder, with 8 airs (songs). All original. Strong spring all controls working. Song Sheet missing, single Pip broken off end of the third to the last rarely used treble key, some wear on the inlay Walnut case. A wonderful piece in great condition. I'll restore this one when i get to it, but I'll have to charge much more after restoring.
