It would be hard to find a true music box much earlier than this. This Swiss music box in a plain woodgrained case dates to the inception of the music box in the 1840-1850 era. Boxes like this are quite scarce, and highly esteemed by collectors.
This little gem, featuring a 9 inch cylinder, is in good unrestored condition.
