272a – Stunning Carl Wagner Mountain Bighorn 1977 Bronze Mug
You are bidding on a stunning bronze Carl Wagner mug that stands 5 1/2″ in height and features a Mountain Bighorn sheep. This bronze mug is incised C. Wagner ’77, and the other side reads:187/1000. It is in excellent condition and would be a wonderful addition to any Wagner bronze collection.

Companion piece to the Mountain Bighorn bell (first two pics).
The mugs usually sell at a discount to the bells.

272d – French Bronze Cast Iron Figural Mechanical Hotel Tap Service Call Bell c.1880

Figural bronze cherub or angel mechanical call bell made in France cir. 1880s.Tap down on the top and it has a long crisp tone. Works perfect and has no damage. It is in original condition and has not been polished. The size is aprox. 7 ” tall.

The dating is correct, but the made in France attribution is ridiculous,
as this is another of the New England mechanical bells with quatrefoil base.

272e – LARGE INTERCHANGEABLE CYLINDER MUSIC BOX BY “LIUNIVERSELLE” WITH 3 BELLS c1880
LARGE RARE OLD ROSEWOOD MUSIC BOX.MADE IN SWITZERLAND IN AROUND 1880. IT IS IN WORKING ORDER, AND HAS ALL ITS TEETH AND TIPS. WHICH OF COURSE IS ONE OF THE THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR. ALL OF THE INLAY INCLUDING THE BOXWOOD STRINGING IS IN VERY GOOD SHAPE FOR IT’S AGE,WITH ONLY MAYBE A COUPLE OF VERY SMALL MARKS. IT HAS A GREAT SOUND AND ALSO THREE BELLS. THE COMB AND THE CYLINDER MEASURE 6.1/2″ INCHES.

THE MUSIC BOX MEASURES 21.1/4″ WIDE X 12.1/2″ DEEP AND 9.3/4″ HIGH. IT HAS THE MAKERS NAME ON THE MOVEMENT AND THE VERY LOW NUMBER “285” ON THE MOVEMENT. AS THERE WERE MANY MUSIC BOX MAKERS IN SWITZERLAND IN THE LATE 1800s. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE IT HAS BEEN KEPT IS IN VERY GOOD ORDER. IT ALSO HAS A LEVER TO STOP THE BELLS, IF SO DESIRED.

THE SOUND IS IN TUNE AND CLEAR AND WE ALL KNOW THERE IS NOTHING TO REPLACE THE SOUND OF AN OLD MUSIC BOX. IT HAS A LOCK AND A KEY WITH A TASSEL (BUT A REPLACEMENT KEY). ALSO PLEASE NOTE THE WONDERFUL SHIPS WHEEL WINDER, WHICH IS THE TRADEMARK OF THE COMPANY. AND ON THE RIGHT SIDE AT THE TOP IS THE CYLINDER. AND BELOW THE START & STOP. ALL ARE WORKING.
