Musical novelties such as this were popular from the 1880s onward. If don't know the date of this harp with cylinder music box enclosed, but if I had to guess I'd guess ca. 1900-1910.
This charming crescent shaped musical harp is in very nice condition, with attractive floral decals. It's quite large for this type of novelty, approximately 26" tall by 17" wide.There are some small extra screw holes in the back where someone tried to reset the movement at one time.
I have pulled and lubricated the movement, which is working properly, and which gives every indication of being the original movement. Comes with a brand new winding key.
