I am pretty it is a music box.  I have an old pic from a magazine where they are interviewing King during the Them recording and he had a music box in his hand.

It sure does sound like a music box the mechanical click at the end seems to be real as the lid is closing that sound is a combination of the note producing comb wire and sprocket coming to a stop abruptly.
