Quality mechanical music items are not expensive, they are priceless! In December we had five Mills Violins for sale. Today we have two single machines ready for purchase, and a Double Violano in the shop undergoing restoration. The double will be available for purchase in the fall if you are interested, give us a call at 800-691-6042. Sales for Mills Violanos are strong and they continue to sell at a steady pace.
We continue to hear other music merchants constantly down playing the current market. NOT SO at Mills Novelty. Our auction activities over the past six months have produced sales of several million dollars, with large Orchestrions leading the way. It is proof beyond question that Mills Novelty sells, and QUALITY items sell!
At Mills Novelty our track speaks for itself. If you are thinking of selling your collection, give us a call as many others are doing. We can find the correct combination of private placement and other marketing to help you sell your items. If you are looking to buy, give us a call as many others are doing... we have several outstanding rare and desirable musical items. Often we sell an item before we even have time to list it here, so call us for the latest currently available instruments.
Several recent auctions have proven once again that this is a good option if you are selling a single item, or entire collection. We work with the LARGEST auctions houses and can help you make the correct choices. We believe in private placement when possible. Matching the buyer, seller, and music machine is always a good idea. But public auctions provide access to many potential buyers all over the world. These buyers are often looking for rare and exceptional investment grade mechanical musical instruments. At Mills Novelty Company we do not try to convince people that we know everything about everything! Our current track record of sales is proof enough. We are happy to share our opinion if ask, to the best of our knowledge, about items we represent. We do not offer opinions for items we have never even seen as some do.
A few weeks ago we moved a very nice Verbeeck dance organ from Long Island New York to its new home in the Midwest. Our relocation team has been busy traveling to private collections and museums to relocate priceless instruments. If you are considering making changes with your present collection, perhaps we can help? To our knowledge, we the only "go to" company that has both the experience and the expert staff required to safely and carefully setup or move the very largest and most complex musical instruments. Give us a call if we can help or answer questions. Our Mills Novelty staff will be visiting both European and American musical events during 2017. Watch for many new items that will come to the market during the next few months!
You can try the rest, then come back to the best! No matter if you are a seller or buyer, we can help, just give us a call at 800-691-6042. We look forward to serving your mechanical music needs.
