Nicole Freres Musical Box at UK Auction
By Brian Chesters

Hello again from the UK.

There is a musical box which sounds great coming up at auction shortly in
the UK which the group may like to hear about. It is described as follows
"An interchangeable cylinder overture music box by Nicole Freres. # 47417.
105cm wide" Well I couldn't resist that one so I called the auctioneer. who
tells me that there are six cylinders, each measuring 41cms and playing
four overtures. so on this box you get 24 overtures as listed on the tune
sheet. He knew nothing of the condition of the box.

I was always told that I should beware of Nicoles over 45000. Any comments

I have made arrangements to attend the sale and will let the group know
what happens.
