{local pick up or buyer arranges 3rd party packing and shipping} Size open 261/2" wide, 38" long with crank in, 11 1/4" tall. size closed without crank 19 1/2" wide x 34 1/4" long and 10 1/4" tall. It isn't often that we are privileged to offer a 27" Regina mahogany case music box -- this is the largest disc size that Regina made. Regina advertised the combs as embracing over seven octaves. This and the 20" Regina are the only two machines that Regina ever designed as double comb single strike -- meaning that while the music box featured two combs, each star wheel struck one and only one tooth at a time. Most 27" Regina's were of imposing physical size, housed in giant cabinets for commercial settings, but this rare machine is a little different, not only because it is a table top model, but also because it shrinks in size when the lid is closed. It was technically known as a Style 6, but is commonly referred to as an accordion case, folding case, or casket case Regina. When the lid unfurls it reveals the dishing wheels for the disc on the underside of the lid. The accordion case Regina was made in limited quantities and has always been a favorite of collectors. The Music Box has not been restored, but it is playing quite decently. There are no broken teeth and the motor is functioning properly. The case is missing a few pcs of wood trim and the accordion lid could use some care. See photos for details Has one disc "Cavalleria Rusticana (Rustic Cavalry) By Giacomo Puccini"
