Intercepted this from going to the landfill. It is missing the pillow top that the drum sits into. I was checking the fabric that covers the drum and found a newsprint under the red fabric from Lund dated 1889, which is in Southern Sweden. The other is a flyer for a museum founded in 1882 to preserve peasant heritage. I just thought it was cool even the period discolored lace at the bottom of pic 1.

    This is truly something special! One seldom sees these in the U.S. Fascinating, and I love the graphics on the paper, too. Wonderful!

    Thanks inky, I just cant stand to see items like this, whether incomplete, broken, or unidentified, to go to the dump. Especially as old as this. This was in my motherinlaws stuff when she moved in with us, and she was just throwing things away left and right. I even pulled sterling silver jewelry out of her garbage pile. 0.O
