    Symphonion Style 36 Coin-Op 13 5/8" Weight-Driven Disc Music Box.

    Produced in Leipzig, Germany, Sublime Harmony Piccolo music mechanism with ornate pressure roller on gilt, ribbed cast iron bedplate playing 100 musical teeth on two opposing combs in walnut cabinet, the door with flat pilasters flanking arched panel, with applied carved and moulded decoration, the base with cruciform panel with carved decoration, on bracket feet, with gallery above.
    While the music tempo will not slow down as the weight descends, it will come to an abrupt stop if it hits bottom. A novel design to prevent that occurrence, the coin slot is automatically blocked when the weight comes close to the bottom. The coin slot reopens as soon as the weight is cranked up sufficiently for at least one play.
    Dimensions: 22" x 14" x 65" H
