A Rare Opportunity....
We have been servicing, buying, and selling Mechanical Music Instruments and Mills Violano’s for decades. But we have never had TWO of the best to offer at the same time!
Our first offering is a wonderful Seeburg Model “H” Orchestrion. Combining a beautiful cabinet with Strength & Beauty carved statues, four large art glass panels, hanging lamps, and top of the line Oak cabinetry, this Seeburg H represents the best that was ever manufactured by this prolific company. Produced in the golden age of mechanical music (circa 1920,) the Seeburg H operated from the special H rolls which were developed exclusively for this instrument. The Seeburg H Orchestrion is considered by most to be the high point of cabinet design and musical perfection ever made in America. The example we present here is without question the finest example in existence today. Restored to perfection by Reblitz Restorations, absolutely nothing was left to chance and it needs nothing further, simply plug and play. This instrument is pictured on a recent front cover of the MBSI Journal with a great multi-page story for documentation.
When it comes to Mills Violanos, we are pleased to offer, for the first time, the earliest model and only known example of its type. Restored by the Haughawout shop, this is without question the finest and rarest Mills Violano Virtuoso on the planet! We helped acquire this one of a kind Violano several years ago for its present owner. We were honored that he chose to have it totally restored by our shops to its present pristine condition. It is pictured on the front cover of the Encyclopedia of Musical Instruments (the bible of Mechanical Music,) and the front cover of another MBSI Journal with a great article about its background.
There you have it, these two pieces represent the very BEST OF THE BEST in the world! Give us a call at 800-691-6042 or call Bob direct at 715-697-9242 for details…
Another unusual Violano ....
This is the best and finest BLACK Mills Violano we have ever seen; a stunning Black Mills Violano in perfect working condition! Image what a combination this would be with a great BLACK grand piano! More information on the for sale page.
We have been authorized to offer at private sale, selected musical items from the Paul & Chris Andrews Collection of Fort Worth Texas. Several of these items are pictured here. Please give us a call at 800-691-6042 if you have interest in anything from this collection.
Much of this vast collection will be featured at public auction on May 2, 2015. Included will be over 75 truly rare and desirable automobiles and other items. The sale will be handled by the world famous RM Sotheby's Auction Company. The Andrews collection is being downsized (including the music collection,) not totally dispersed. This will allow the present property to be used for other purposes.
The largest and most desirable mechanical music instruments continue to be solid investments in the future. This bodes well for the bright future of Mechanical Music.
We are also pleased to confirm that recently a private sale occurred for the unique Welte Wotan Orchestrion at a new world record price! We have now relocated it to its new home, and it plays magnificently! A complete story about this, the greatest of all mechanical music instruments will be posted soon.
Our current offerings include some of the finest large Orchestrions ever available in recent times. The wonderful Wurlitzer Pian-Orchestrion Style 30A (one of two known), has not been for sale in the collector market in over 40 years! Also we have a Weber Otero (restored, from a USA collection), another Weber Otero (in nice playing condition from a European collection), and the top of the line Weber Solea (from a California collection). Any one of these pieces would be the "star" of most automatic music collections.
We have been communicating with sellers and buyers about the current marketplace to establish realistic prices. Opportunities exist for discriminating buyers who are looking for solid future investments against the volatile stock market. Look over our "for sale" items and give us a call, 800-691-6042.
