5¢ MILLS NOVELTY. CO. VIOLANO-VIRTUOSO MUSIC PLAYER.

Lot 4474 Details

Description
In 1906 the Mills Novelty Company launched the "Automatic Virtuoso" and the Mills Violano-Virtuoso was born. From that day on into the 1930's, the Violano-Virtuoso went through many design changes and enhancements including a ships version where the piano could be played manually, and several other versions where accompanying instruments could be added to the mainstay violin with piano. This example could be ordered in walnut or quartered oak, and this oak version has had a recent restoration, is in great tune, and ready to play. Comes with 1 roll. A wonderful playing and sounding instrument and ready for your home. With keys. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. Condition: (Very Good). Dimensions: 64 - 1/2" x 43" x 30".
