Rare Ariston Organette
c.1900 with 10 original disks, in lovely working order. This German made mechanical marvel became the most popular table model ever made because of its ease of use and strong melodic tone. Only around one in every hundred was made in this deluxe case with the antiqued wood grain finish and ornate corner posts instead of the usual plain ebonised case. This particular machine was part of the Northleach Mechanical Music Museum collection, which closed its doors for good recently after 40 years.
