Music Box Rotating Base is Christmas Tree Stand
By Christian Greinacher
Responding to MMD 020111. The picture provided by Joy McNally shows
a rotating Christmas tree stand, from which the nickel plated cover
is missing. From my point of view it seems hard to identify which
firm has made it.
To my surprise I could not find a picture of a similar rotating stand
in the Bowers Encyclopedia. So I will add a picture of such a stand
which I have in my collection and, because I am just repairing another
one, I am going to take a picture of that one uncovered, just for
comparison. I could not identify the makers of these two rotating
Christmas tree stands.
[ Thanks for the photos, Christian; I'll place them at
