About This Project

Poppy says: “it’s a beautiful piece of mechanical magic.  I remember seeing it as a child and falling in love with it.  I’ve remembered it ever since.”

A Polyphon is a mechanical, disc-playing music box.  They were invented in 1870 in Leipzig and exported around the world.

  

Our Polyphon is currently silent because it needs its mechanism over hauling and the discs are worn out.  We are currently fundraising to bring the beloved Polyphon back to life.  All donations kindly appreciated – Click here to read more and donate.
