Large Auction in Chartres on Dec. 6th 1998
By Philippe Rouillé

To-night, I have put on web pages some pictures of some instruments
to be sold in Chartres (France) on December 6th.

For the pleasure of your eyes, you may look at :

 = A selection of singing birds, musical watches and snuffboxes
 = An Exceptional orchestra Musical box  on a table, with a clock and
   two singing birds, interchangeable cylinders, for the Chinese market
 = A musical automaton by Phalibois of a drinking man with a barrel
 = A Large Swiss station musical box with a large revolving doll
 = A Wilhelm Bruder Soehne Barrel Organ (Waldkirch), 24 keys, 9 tunes

Within 2 or 3 days, I hope to put more pictures on this page.

Within 2 or 3 days, too, I shall be able to send an English text of
the catalogue (without pictures, but with the estimates) to anybody
interested.  Only automatas and mechanical music instruments will be
listed in this translation; I did not translate the texts concerning
gambling machines (about 40 pieces) and phonos (about 60 pieces).
(I'll put it as a Word 5 text in attachment (about 60 Kb), unless you
want it in another format, inside an e-mail for example..)

For a complete printed catalog with pictures (black and white and
color, price fifty French francs), please ask the auctioneer directly
(not me):  Fax : + 33 (0)2 37 36 34 71

Best regards,

Philippe Rouille  (Paris, France)
