The Regina Music Box

This Regina Music Box was made in 1898 and classified as an "idiophone". The idiophone instruments produced sound by vibrating objects set to a specific pitch. The first disks were made of zinc, but the projections kept breaking off, so the disks were then made from brass or steel. Some disks were even coated with copper!
