P. V. F. 8 Air Mandolin Music Box
1885

A delightful 8 air mandolin music box made by P. V. F. in 1885.

The twin spring motor powers the movement for over 20 minutes of Victorian musical delight. Included in its repertoire is Felix Mendelssohn's Wedding March. Written in 1842, it was made popular when Queen Victoria's daughter, Victoria, The Princess Royal selected it to be used at her wedding to Prince Frederick William of Prussia in 1858. Played to perfection here by this fine instrument made a mere 27 years later.

Movement and case have been lovingly restored by our craftsmen.
