15.5 inch Regina music box, short bedplate mahogany for sale

$4000

The most desirable of Regina music boxes, the short bedplate machines were a late development in the history of the Regina company, and so are relatively scarce.

The revolution in case design, effectively incorporating two sounding boards, yielded a machine unsurpassed in brilliance and tonal quality.

Serpentine case are typically associated with short bedplate machines, and this example is no exception, sitting in a nicely refinished mahogany cabinet.

The combs are in very nice condition, clean with no broken teeth, and there is no oxidation of the leads. There is evidence that at one time the dampers were professionally regulated, and the combs are ringing out true with no distracting damper noise.

I had removed and cleaned the governor assembly and put a new jewel in it. The motor is running smoothly.

Short bedplate machines are highly esteemed by collectors and always command a premium.

Includes ten very nice original 15.5 inch discs.
