Catalog Description:

C.1900, German, Symphonion Musical clock, as-found, playing, but with incorrect discs. We struggled to figure why, when plucked individually the teeth sounded fine, but with edge drive disc of another brand, why the tune sounded so poor..?? The answer of course is that you must find at least one Symphonion No. 20, center drive, 4 inches disc. This clock is rare, but any box in need of discs is a project for the owner. Full details on this Symphonion clock may be found in Bower's ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AUTOMATIC MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, page 216. Height 13 inches
