Central to the collection are two mechanical musical instruments and a vintage 1911 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Seven-Passenger Roi des Belges, with beautifully crafted coachwork by Aldford & Alder. One of the instruments is a Cremona Style K Orchestrion with three ranks of pipes, designed by Marquette Piano Co. from Chicago. The other is a Mills Automatic Virtuosa which, fortunately, was fully restored.
