Many thanks Curt! Some wonderful machines yourself, as ALL of these have been. Amazing, to me, the level of creativity that went into these little charmers.

Kirkwood, these have always been interesting to me and the good thing is they take up less space... :D

Here's the first-series Peter Pan, from 1923. As you say of your slightly later one Kirkwood, it plays and sounds much better than it "should"!

I have really enjoyed this thread. I like the miniatures. Maybe a new way to fritter away my ill-gotten gain, now that there is just no more room for big machines. :D

That's gorgeous Curt! They're so cute, aren't they? Mine sits next to my EMGs, and the ridiculous difference in size is hilarious.
