FS: Crown Devon Musical Novelties
By Kevin McElhone

I have been asked to see an entire collection of Crown Derby relief
moulded musical items dating from 1930 to 1938 -- jugs, tankards,
flagons -- playing a total of six different tunes, but most play
"Daisy Bell".

The retired owner (currently living on an off-shore island) would
prefer collection in person from him or myself, or delivery could
be arranged to any Musical Box Society meeting.  It would not be safe
to post these fragile items.

Also: a 5-year-old fair organ figure with automation, never fitted
to an instrument, made by Dean's of Bristol, England.  This could
be posted.  £175.

Photos and list available -- please ask.
