This rare and magnificent antique Kalliope music box is housed in an extraordinary carved mahogany case, ornamented with a beautiful medallion, carved head on top. Kalliope Musikwerke of Leipzig, Germany, was celebrated for producing some of the worlds best and most impressive disc-type music boxes in the time these musical marvels of 19th century technology were first produced. This table model was likely produced in the late 1890s and offers outstanding tonal quality. It is built with 10 saucer bells that can be turned off or on by means of a switch placed at the right of the box near the winding crank.
