Hi,

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Concert Roller Music Box, circa: 1887 has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $***-**-****.00, The Bird Cage Music Box, with two birds, ( rare to find two birds in one cage ) these are called Automaton Music Boxes early 1900's France-$1***-**-****.00
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. There is also Rubylane a more upscale site to sell from. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.

It was a pleasure working for you. I would be happy to help you with any items in the future.
