Jacot Peerless 19th century mechanical music box, not working, but complete with crank for winding. Removable pin cylinder appears to have six different tunes that will play sequentially as the spring motor drives it. Crank has resistance when attempting to wind it gently, so the main spring is probably intact and the speed regulation mechanism just needs to be carefully cleaned. Inside cover has a handwritten sign (see photos) noting that other pin cylinders are available. Beautiful inlaid wood in floral pattern on the cover, and the box is overall in very good condition for being more than a century old. Some knowledgeable cleaning or repair work inside could get this running and playing again.
