Usually found in serpentine cases such as this, the late short bedplate machines were the ultimate development of the Regina music box, yielding a deep exquisite sound. Shortly after this technological attainment music boxes fell out of style, giving way to the phonograph and Victrola.
This example is in a nice, refinished mahogany case. It plays smoothly and well. There are no broken teeth on the comb, and the dampers are in regulation.
I had done quite a bit of labor on this machine to get the motor to take off properly. There is a brand new mainspring in the motor, and I had replaced the governor assembly so as to make this trouble free for you. I have removed the adjustable speed control, which is only found on very late Reginas, and which typically causes the governor to bind.
The easiest music box to get discs for, and includes 10 original discs in very nice condition.
