Malke & Oberländer
With the Fortuna Duplex Music Box No. 435, Malke & Oberländer created a music box of unsurpassed qualities supporting an unprecedented playtime of 4 minutes in soft, yet full and warm sound quality.
Friedrich E. Malke and Friedrich H. Oberländer founded Malke & Oberländer in 1895, renaming it „Adler Fabrik deutsch-amerikanische Musikwerke Schlobach, Malke & Oberländer“ in the following year. Located in Leipzig, Germany, the company produced a wide array of disc-style music boxes ranging from table, to hanging, to free-standing models.sources
