Lot 112 : Superb Large Rare Polyphon Disc Musical Box
We sold this lot for £1,900 in November 2016

c.1895, a very rare 19 & 5/8ths table Polyphpon - the largest and most expensive table model they made. In original untouched working order, not having been repolished or messed around with. Beautiful cabinet in a variety of exotic wood veneers and carvings, with a marquetry design to the top of the lid, witha lovely patina. Comes complete with 17 original discs - the same size as used in the coin-op wall mounted versions, so easy to source more. Much rarer than the wall mounted machines in this size, the table machines are usually quite small (from 6.5 inches disc size) for portability - this was the top-of-the-range machine designed for the very best houses to show off their wealth! Video coming soon.
