Каких только устройств "с музыкой" люди не придумали! У меня был пост про музей музыкальных автоматов, где играет все- от пианино до ваз и даже стульев. Причем изобретательность не знала границ, музыкальные механизмы вставлялись и в часы,и в посуду и в шкафы-кабинеты. Специальные же музыкальные шкафы и шкатулки были цилиндровыми или дисковыми, могли играть множество мелодий. Часто к ним добавлялись и композиции из движущихся фигурок-автоматов, тогда все это превращалось в волшебное зрелище.
Нам соседи за ненадобностью подарили американскую виктролу 1903 года, она проигрывает старинные пластинки. Громкость,акустика и сила звука потрясающая, все это достигается только конструкцией корпуса, хотя выглядит она просто как красивый шкафчик-сервант на ножках, без всяких грамофонных раструбов. Гости не верят, что такое возможно без электричества и ищут провод!:)

Polyphon Automatic Disc Changer No. 5, c. 1900

A scarce and magnificent Polyphon Autochanger with 16 saucer bells playing 22" discs. Standing over eight feet tall, this machine allows you to select the disc you wish to play and watch as it is raised up to the movement. It is in superb condition, has a beautiful sound, and is in perfect working order. It comes with fifteen discs.

Polyphon, Germany, c. 1895

This beautiful Polyphon plays 15 1/2" discs with a lovely rich sound. The walnut case and movement are original, while the disc bin and pediment have been replaced, although the bin does have a particularly beautiful veneer. It comes with 15 discs.

Glorious Polyphon Style 6G with 16 bells and crisp, beautiful sound

A very rare Symphonion “Eroica” in a walnut case, made in Germany c. 1898. This superb machine plays three discs at the same time in harmony with each other. This creates a beautiful harmonic sound. When a penny is inserted into the slot this music plays twice. The original painted glass panel in the door shows a semi-clad lady and cherub, and the lower section of the case stores the sets of discs. The discs are 13 ¾” / 35cm diameter.

Euphonion, 1898
A lovely and unusual Euphonion playing 19 5/8" Polyphon discs, probably made for the eastern European market. With a very nice sound, the case of this machine is striking with the extraordinary amount of turning and carving - and all original. It comes with 15 discs.

Polyphon 19 5/8" Upright Disc Music Box, 1897

This is an unusual machine - a beautiful walnut-cased Polyphon with an eight-day clock in the pediment, but in all my years I have never seen this style of case before. The proportions are beautiful, with the disc bin significantly taller than other similar Polyphons. The name Johannjax, Linz and Salzburg is carved into the motor cover, and the motor is dated 1897. It is all original, the sound is superb, and it comes with fifteen discs.

Antique Rotating Stand with Combined Music Box
Here is a very interesting piece from the 1800's made by Kalliope Musik Werke of Leipzig, Germany. The device features a stand in the center that rotates when the the spring wound mechanism is activated. Because you can place anything you like on the stand, it is very flexible in how it may be used. On the stand, one may place a figurine (as shown here), seasonal items, holiday-related items, special occasion items, or prized possessions. There is also a fine music box inside the box that plays 7 inch kalliope discs.
