How to Find the Best Disc Music Box, Part II

Whether you collect antique music boxes, vintage music boxes, ballerina music boxes for your ballerina room décor, wooden keepsake boxes, or musical jewelry boxes, disc music boxes also make lovely collectibles. Here are ten more unique disc music boxes to choose from.

The Fortuna

This music box was made by Julius H Zimmerman. He actually took over the Adler products and then subsequently changed the name to "Fortuna". Upright and horizontal items were made. The trademark is an eagle with spread wings holding in its beak a ribbon which has the word "patented" on it, with "schutzmark" above, and "trade mark" below.

Gloria Disc Box

This box comes in two disc sizes of 11 ¾ inches and 18 ¼ inches. Standard combs were used and both upright and horizontal items were manufactured by Societe Anonyme.


This is not the same as the "Gloria" box mentioned above. This twin disc model, made by Paul Ehrlich and Company, played 26 ½ inch discs.


The "Harmonia" disc music box ranged in size from 8 inches to 16 inches and was made by Harmonia SA.


The trademark of this disc box has the word "Imperator" enclosed within a circle with a flaming torch separating the word "trade mark" attached on a stamped medallion and cast on the bedplate. This box was made between 1893-1900.

Imperial Symphonion

This collectible item was manufactured by the Symphonion Manufacturing Company.


The Junghas disc music box trade mark is a "J" within a star on the disc. It was made by Junghanssche Uhrenfabrik.


This interesting music box came in both upright and horizontal positions. Some even had bells. The disc sizes ranged form 5 ¾ inches to 29 ½ inches.


Komet Musikwerke made the Komet disc music box though the model was actually introduced by Franz louis Bauer in 1894. Of the two styles, the earlier style had the disc without projections. Also the 33 ¼ inch one was played on ahuge upright machine with a bell accompaniment.


This truly was a unique disc music box. Made by Fredrich Adolf Richter and Company, it had a unique system of folding cardboard strips (music books).

Collecting items such as music boxes is an enjoyable hobby. Whether you are collecting antique music boxes, vintage music boxes, ballerina music boxes for your ballerina room décor, wooden keepsake boxes, or musical jewelry boxes, you also may wish to consider adding any one of these specialized disc music boxes. They truly will add beauty and value to your collection.
