    Description

    Symphonion 13 5/8" Upright Disc Music Box.




    Plays twin diametric musical combs of fifty teeth each in sublime harmony piccolo format, mounted on ornate gilt iron casting, with manual start/stop lever, in walnut case, the pediment with central fan flanked by twin finials over partially glazed door with tri color gilt decoration, over drawer, on turned feet, with ten 13 5/8" center-driven discs.
    Symphonion's two gantry approach where each tooth has its own disc track reduces stress on disc projections as well as permits teeth of the same pitch to be played either together for the Sublime Harmony effect or separately for faster note repetition.
    Dimensions: 22"x 14"9x40" H
