The SEXTROLA is a very rare machine, having only been made in 1908, the date on the front of the machine, along with the serial number #4196. It plays: 44 note piano, 44 Cremona-toned pipes representing first violin, second violin, and "cello"; mandolin attachment; 12 note set of orchestra bells. It has a loud pedal and soft pedal with the piano part, and a swell box in the rear to add to the expression of the music. It plays an endless roll that is very scarce, and is usually a roll of six tunes.
This famous SEXTROLA once sat in a famous Madam''s house in upper New York state. It was used their until her husband''s death, and was then moved to the personal home where it sat for many years. The name SEXTROLA would indicate use in a redlight district.
The art glass is of a delicate coloring and in good condition. The front wood in the lower section has been removed and replaced with plexiglass so the most interesting action of the music may be observed. The music is plays is of unusual tone and depth and typical of an era long past--all part of our American Heritage.
