Music Boxes, Carousels, and Hand Organ

This special collection of 19th-century music boxes, carousels and hand organs yields not only the delicate bell-like tingle we associate with the music box or the huskier sound of hand organ bellows, but also a few not-yet-so-elegant jangles from some of the earliest ever mechanical contraptions.
