Good antique condition with minor restoration to finishing slats and varnish

Kalliope from 1903 - Christmas tree standard and Christmas music box.

The Christmas tree standard is constructed of solid oak wood and has brass fittings all around.
The holder in the middle is of gold plated cast iron. This holder spins around when the music box plays.
The music box is a Kalliope mechanism, to be wound with a large key to the front of the box.
After fully winding it plays for a long time, with a sliding knob beneath the mechanism it can be turned off and on. At the music box 14 die-cut iron plates in original box with a.o. Christmas music.

The music box and the mechanism are in used good condition. At the bottom of the music box on both sides two finishing slats replaced/restored, and one of the four bun feet is not original. A few years ago a new coat of varnish was applied.
The photos are a part of the description.

The Christmas tree holder with music box dates around 1903, the origin is Kalliope Musikwerke Leipzig Germany.

The lot will be sent carefully packed and insured only (weight package above 10 kg).

    Het spijt mij dat de oude speeldoos niet in goede orde bij u is aangekomen. Transporteurs gaan soms erg ruw met pakketjes om en daar zijn oude speeldozen, ondanks gedegen verpakking, niet altijd tegen bestand. Ook uw pakket is hiervoor goed verzekerd en ik maak van kwetsbare of mechanische items altijd een opname van de werking. Per Catawiki-mail zal ik u twee opties voorstellen om u voor uw schade te compenseren.
    Nogmaals mijn excuses voor uw ongemak.

    Deze feedback is niet terecht. Het pakket is wegens problemen met de internationale track & trace codes naar Italië retour gekomen begin juli. Omdat niet zichtbaar en duidelijk was waarom het pakket retour kwam heb ik het die week nogmaals ad 21,15 euro verzonden (totaal dus al 42,30 euro verzendkosten gemaakt). Inmiddels zijn de track & trace codes naar Italië weer zichtbaar en kan ik (en PostNL ook) zien wat er gebeurd is en waarom het pakket wéér een tweede keer retour gaat naar mij als afzender. Het pakket is u tot twee keer aangeboden door de postbezorger maar zonder resultaat. In Italië wordt een pakket dan gewoon weer retour gestuurd als twee bezorgpogingen mislukken (zie de informatie o.b.v. de betreffende track & trace code). Daar kan ik niets aan doen.
    Ik ben 42,30 euro kwijt voor twee pogingen het pakket aan u te leveren én ik heb van u nu ook nog een negatieve feedback gekregen. Over deze vervelende situatie heb ik inmiddels contact opgenomen met Catawiki.
