The Reeded Edge is one of the oldest and most established rare coin and collectible firms on the internet. Everyone who works here is a collector, and all of our items are acquired as if we were buying them for ourselves. We do not handle reproductions, restored, or modified items. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service; Just read our response!Everything that we sell (including this music box) comes with our 100% iron-clad guarantee; you must be satisfied, or you may return it for a no-questions-asked refund. It's that simple!

With that said, this is a Mira Music Box No. 167 Duplex Harp-Zither w/29 Tune Sheets. This circa-1900 music box is manufactured from mahogony; the finish is 100% original, and virtually as-made. Only some trivial surface imperfections are noted for accuracy, but in no way detract from its "minty" appeal. The box measures 21 3/4" x 19" on the base, 18 1/2" x 15 3/4" in the center and 19 3/4" x 17" on the top. It is 11" high. This box was designed to play 12" tune sheets, of which 29 are included. This was an inherited heirloom from a local family, and has been with this family from the time it was purchased new. Also included with the box, is an original Mira Music Catalog/Manual (the first that we have ever seen) along with the original instruction sheet. We see the words "fresh", "original" and "unmolested" used liberally with antiquities, but in the case of this music box, it is all of the above. This is a completely functional and 100% original music box with beautiful tones, and in excellent-near mint condition. A finer example would be hard to imagine!

Historical Background - The disc music box was introduced in the mid 1890s. These machines, which involved little hand workmanship, were mass produced in Germany, Switzerland, and the United States. Made by Mermod Freres, a Swiss timepiece manufacturer founded in 1816, the Mira is known for its brilliant tone and resonant bass. The Mira was introduced in 1903 as a more affordable alternative to the projectionless disc Stella, also sold by Mermod Freres. This particular model, the Mira 167 features a double comb, plays 12” star discs, and measures 21"W x 11"H x 18"D. Included with the music box are 29 discs along with a Mira catalogue and operating instructions. The double comb music boxes were prized over their single comb counterparts for their superior and rich sound quality.
