Regina Music Box with Stand
An interchangeable disk music box crafted by the Regina Music Box Company of New York. The slightly domed lid of the walnut box is supported on turned spindles above a stepped edge, which rests on a paneled case with recessed turned corner columns raised on a carved and stippled footed base. A brass hand crank is mounted to the case. The lid lifts to reveal a monochrome lithograph on its interior, depicting a representation of Regina, venerating her as the Queen of Music, and is copyrighted 1896 by the Regina Music Box Company. The music box is raised on an open-shelf stand with carved cabinet doors that reveal additional disk storage. Measures: 47 x 24 x 22 in.
