Twenties novelty item manufactured by QRS piano roll company in Buffalo , New York (plays a small paper roll,like a piano roll , cranked over the holes in the wooden clarinet.)

In remarkably good condition for it's age, plays reasonably well for what it is.

I understand they may still have rolls for these things in Buffalo??--might check on that...

Very original condition, all complete and operable, all original paint and decal.

See how much breath you can hold to complete a tune??!!

Just in time for Christmas, for the automatic music fan who thinks he has everything?

Happy bidding!
