MUSIC BOX
Simply nice is this music box for its technic features due to the extraordinary musical movement. A great bargain is this real precious and nice looking treasure in its smooth and classic style.
This muscial was handcrafted of the worldwide well known REUGE manufactory in Switzerland.
The case was made of solid walnut wood.
A portrait of Bach decorates the treasure. A sheet of notes showing one of Bach's opus makes the background of the lid's decoration.
The glazing enables to have a look from the top on the with great expense manufactured musical movement.
All things considered a real optical delight.

MUSIC
The 72-tone-cylinder-movement is installed inside and covered by a second lid of glass. The movement will be wound up at the bottom.
Using the lever three melodies of Bach and Handel will play in great harmony one after another
"Minuet (Menuet)" by Johann Sebastian Bach
"Gavotte" by George Frideric Handel(Georg Friederich Haendel)
"Aria" by George Frideric Handel.
The composition and the arrangement of these airs are perfect. This music box will always convince for its richness and brillance of sound with its clear notes but smooth acoustics at the same time thanks to the great working in harmony of the case and the musical movement.
