FS: 19-5/8" Polyphon Upright in England
By Mark Singleton

About a year ago I posted here on MMD information about a small
collection available here in England UK that belongs to the widow
of a late friend.  I managed to find homes for most of her pieces,
and three cylinder boxes went to two clock collectors and one going
to a guy who specialises in large steam engine restoration.  I will
be following all three up in the hope of recruiting them for the
MBSGB and MBSI membership.

Meanwhile, one instrument that still remains available is a 19-5/8"
upright Polyphon; it's a good original example of its type.  I've
known this piece for 25 years and anyone considering acquiring one
would be hard pushed to find a better example.
