Jacot 8-Tune Musical Box
By Anthony Morrone

-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMD --

Could you help me find out any more information on a particular music
box?  We have had this box in the family for about 75 years.  I am
trying to find out more information regarding the value and interest
in the following music box.  Any information would be appreciated.
I may be willing to sell depending upon the value.

   Jacot's, Patented Sep. 22 1886
   DRP 335164358543884   55886+2222 Switzerland
   Approx. 28" long wood case, inlaid top and front
   Cylinder plays 8 songs
   Needs some refinishing but sounds great.

If anyone can provide some history on this music box it would be
greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
Anthony Morrone
