Fifteen Inch Regina music box with 30 discs for sale

$2800

This fifteen and a half inch Regina music box in a pretty original finish golden oak case was one of the first to be sold in the United States, dating to the mid 1890s or slightly earlier. Regina was begun as a branch of Polyphon, and early Reginas like this were fitted with a Polyphon type motor, seated in a domestic case.

Everything is working properly on this double comb machine. I had pulled and gently cleaned the combs, and cleaned off some corrosion at the base of the combs, not affecting the teeth. I had also cleaned the damper assembly, and cleaned out the star wheel gantry. There are no broken teeth. The motor takes off properly, and plays smoothly.

The case is quite nice with original lid picture. Someone a long time ago replaced one of the wooden slats surrounding the bedplate.

There's a small, unusual additional wooden base for this which seats the feet of the music box, possibly to elevate the sounding board and provide additional resonance.

Bonus, bonus, bonus! Includes 30 discs of the same vintage as the machine.
