There is a very dedicated group of collectors for these cylinder type music boxes, values vary quite a bit depending on the model and maker. I suggest you have a look and compare yours to those listed.

I love these!

Does it play?

I believe you might want to search for a Marque De Fabrique instead of a Jacot.

I found this one online...but it didn't play and sold as is. 

I'm not sure it they added the comb cover or if yours is missing???
