  19. Yes they are very famous for music boxes from what o can find and highly sought after. These tables music boxes are also collectable but not to the degree of jewelry boxes.
  20. I was just told this are likely Reuge and they likely have swiss music movements
  21. I cant rule out the fact this might be a reproduction but the wood does show natural patina on the club I might have not taken photos that accurately show that the tags are just there to ID the piece ...
  22. Well I did the magnet and it sticks to the blade and tacks. The tacks on this are not made of brass I can see that made of something else. The blade looks maybe to be iron forged.

  30. Maybe ...but I would have to Decide Neat or very few Rocks
  31. I'm looking closer at some of the other photos as well and it looks like the la Citadelle in Quebec City that would be nice I imagine these early photos would be great in a historical sense to the city.
