Unknown Music Rolls, 13-1/4" Wide
By Kim Bunker

Hi everyone,  Kim Bunker here at Orange Coast Piano.  I've got some
music rolls here that we can't figure out what kind they are.  One of
my friends said to describe it on MMD -- somebody will know what they
are.  Anyway, here's the details (there are 12 of them).

They are 13-1/4" [33.6 cm] wide inside.  The spool sides are wood with
a pin on both sides; one side next to the pin has what looks like a
staple.  Each roll has a small different colored cloth leader the width
of the roll.

On one of the rolls, stamped on the label for about three to four
inches, it says "Symphonia Antwenpen".  Six of these rolls have boxes;
however, the labels are very hard to read.  The only thing we can make
out at the top of the boxes is "Programma" and the title of the song on
five of them.  Help!
