Music Boxes and Related Items For Sale

 

 

Usually, I do not have time to picture most of the boxes in stock, because they don't stay around long enough to do so!

I'd be happy to consult with you about your needs....just e-mail (musicbox@frontiernet.net)  or call (315-684-9977) with what you're looking for.
 

I currently have a selection of unrestored keywind cylinder boxes...starting at under $1000...and various sizes of lever wind cylinder boxes, both stationary and interchangeable cylinder types.

I can sell boxes on consignment for you too!  Having been in the business for 45+ years. I have an extensive customer base and can place your musical treasures in appreciative homes!  E-mail or call for information.

Below are some of the boxes currently in stock, as well as some typical pieces that I've sold in the past. As I get a chance, I'll post pictures of items currently in stock.   Call/e-mail if you have any questions!

I can make a video of any boxes that are for sale!


ALERT!!

Last year (2012) we got in one collection of 72 pieces!  This year we were out for five weekends in a row collecting boxes from Virginia to Massachusettes!  Once my shows are over and I have some time, I'll be putting some of the pieces on this site.

I have a show in early March in NC, two shows coming up in June and the Musical Box Society Annual Meeting later in the year. I'll  be bringing whatever’s playing to those shows.  Of course, I’ll be selling stuff ahead of time too!

I don’t currently have a listing of the boxes.  Some are playing fine, some have great movements and need some casework. Some have great cases, but need movement work.  All have been in storage for about 20-50 years.

Regina 15 1/2" Changer

REGINA 15 1/2" AUTOMATIC CHANGER!

The true "Queen" of the music boxes, the changer was the prequil to the modern juke box.  Fill the rack with 12 discs, wind it up, and watch the mechanism lift a disc up onto the bedplate; play it; lower it back into the rack - then the carriage will advance to the next disc, and repeat the cycle.  When the last disc is reached, the carriage movement will automatically reverse direction and play the discs over again!  You can select which tune you want to hear with the dial on the side.
SOLD!
