Our fall event started this type of specialized sale at Stanton’s and has always proven to be a strong and interesting offering. This upcoming auction will prove to be no different and has already produced many interesting and wonderful examples of antique music machines, advertising and collectibles from estates and private collections. Many of these items were acquired from the owners 40-50 years ago when they began collecting and have been held behind closed doors since that time.
A very rare Berliner Gramophone hand wind machine with stamped wheel (see photographs), a rare and great Melba phonograph with pedestal and Victor Brass horn, Edison fan, Edison Kinetoscope, rare Edison Mazda advertising with Maxfield Parrish illustrations, store displays, Herzog full barrel & bow front record cabinets, records, fine Victor phonographs and wooden horn machines, rare lamp phonographs, cylinder and disc music boxes, roller organs, and more.
Also, from a wonderful eastern U.S. Collection is a Black Forest grouping including a rare Quail & Cuckoo clock that operates every ¼ hour, Symphonion wall clock with music box, Regina Coin Operated music box with gum dispenser, Kalliope Christmas tree stand with disc music box & bells, a rare automatic flute with 8 wooden pipes, and more.
This will be an excellent auction, and a great opportunity for sellers and buyers alike.
