Rare Savoyard Music Box by Polyphon

2 minute read

 

This exceptionally rare "Savoyard" automaton disk player by Polyphon Musikwerke is one of only a handful known to exist, and the only one known to be in perfect working condition such as this. When a coin is dropped in the slot, the large terra-cotta organ grinder's hand turns the crank, setting his diminutive monkey dancers into motion while the music box plays a lovely tune. The Savoyard is still considered among the greatest music boxes ever created, and is highly sought-after by seasoned collectors and music enthusiasts alike. This Savoyard displays a superior sound quality and comes complete with 14 disks measuring 15 1/2" in diameter.
