This enchanting Symphonion music cabinet is one of the most unique and advanced music players of its time. Housed in a gorgeous walnut case, the cabinet is detailed with gorgeous carvings of female figures, grotesque faces, and architectural elements, all combining to create a striking, elegant machine. The hinged door houses an attractive Lenzkirch clock that plays the music every hour, if desired. Opening the door reveals the musical movement, while the base of the cabinet opens to reveal additional discs, thirteen of which are included.

The Symphonion bears a small label; that of the retailer Petersen & Steenstrup, Kjobenhavn (Copenhagen), who produced and retailed musical instruments and mechanical music between 1887 and 1920. Although made in Germany this machine has, until recently, spent all its life in Denmark along with just one other of its kind.

First produced in 1886, Symphonion music boxes came in a wide variety of styles and sizes, and were extremely advanced technologically, being the first to apply sublime harmony combs in two positions for each disc. Combining exceptional style with innovative engineering, this thirteen-disc music cabinet is certainly one of Symphonion's finest achievements. 

Circa 1895
