This rare and enchanting Symphonion Eroica musical automaton is one of the most advanced music players of its era. Considered among the finest, and certainly the rarest, of the musical works created by Symphonion Musikwerke of Germany, the Eroica was offered in three models. This example is the most elite of these models and is one of the few surviving clock cases boasting the dramatic dome at its crown. Beautifully hand carved from walnut, the tall case showcases exquisite detail and craftsmanship throughout, making it just as desirable a timepiece as a music box. It is, however, the mechanism inside that makes this music maker truly spectacular.

Behind the stunning front panel, the extraordinary music box plays an incredible 6-part harmony on three discs. These discs are placed in overlapping positions and are played simultaneously by two motors complete with two governors. 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 harmonie combs in two positions for each disc. Combining exquisite style with superior engineering, this triple-disc playing Eroica gives greater depth and resonance to every melody played, and today is considered Symphonion’s finest achievement. For superior pieces such as this Eroica, Symphonion selected the highest quality clock movements crafted by the Lenzkirch Clock Company of Germany.

This exceptional machine is accompanied by nine sets of discs, including 8049: Estudiantina Walzer, 8106: Gesang des Friedensboten, 8009: O bitt' euch liebe Vögelein, 8045: Freischütz, 8053: Sei nicht bös, 6217: Carmen, 6802: The Soldiers of the Queen, 6022: Maritana Walzer, and 6009: The Troubadour. It remains in excellent, working condition with superior sound quality. In terms of rarity, beauty, and historic importance, it is one of the finest musical clocks of its type in existence.

Circa 1895
