Hi Group, Thanks very much for your time! I have already received
Tune 1 has been identified as "Il Bacio" by Luigi Arditi.
Tune 2 has been identified as "Ecco, ridente in cielo"
from The Barber of Seville" by G. Rossini
Tune 3 has been identified as "Tyrolienne from William Tell" by Rossini.
Tune 4 is still unknown.
Tune 5 has been identified as "Le ranz des vaches" (the "cow-song",
a popular Swiss tune)
Tune 6 is still unknown.
As to dating, one says 1880 to 1890, another says 1883, which fits, and
a third says late 19th century, which also fits.
As to make, I have been given Paillard from three people. They came up
with this due to various construction features and the serial number.
Another said PVF/Paillard.
Robbie, Jody, and MMD are terrific!
