Double Sided Tremolo with bells, $160, 1920-1931, - 2 bells, stacked; "University Beaver Brand - University
Chimes" bell harmonica, Klingenthal, Germany, 1910-1931. This double-sided harmonica, Chimes
with 48 reeds on each side, was offered for sale in Sears catalogs from 1910 through
1931. A metal "arch" runs along the center line between the two reed covers. Under the
center of the arch are two cup-shaped bells, one above the other. A finger-operated lever
on either side of the arch allows the bells to be rung while playing the harmonica. It carries
the "Beaver Brand" name, and was probably made in the Klingenthal area of western
Germany. Alan G. Bates Collection, 2000.. collection: nmm hc jw dv

Beuscher, Paul
12 Beuscher, Paul Anthology 11.0 © 2019 John R. Whiteman 4/24/2019
Paul Beuscher Double sided tremolo, $24-$27, - 2 specimens from different sellers several years apart -
both had identical unmarked leather pouches, so I am fairly confident that the pouches
came with the harps. Photo of Seydel Bandmaster with pouch kindly submitted by
Richard Rose, showing that the cover plate decorations are identical. I compared the
injected plastic comb of the Beuscher and Bandmaster and they are from the same mold,
so it is clear that the Beuscher harps were produced by Seydel after Russian occupation
of East Germany and prior to Reunification in 1990. collection: jw

England to produce celluloid and fancy goods. Their first toy was a windmill in 1920 that
was sold at Woolworths. The first doll followed five years later. They introduced Plastex, a
non-breakable bouncy form of plastic in the early 1930s. Cascelloid was bought in 1931
by British Xylonite. The word 'Palitoy' was trademarked in 1935 for the toy division of
British Xylonite. Toy production slowed due to the outbreak of war in 1939. In 1941,
injection moulding was developed by British Xylonite and was used for Palitoy toys. In the
late 1940s, toy production recovered. Palitoy was sold to General Mills in 1968. It became
the Palitoy Company in 1980 when Palitoy, Denys Fisher, and Chad Valley broke away
from General Mills. Alfred Pallett died in 1982 and in 1986, the company ceased trading.
Factory, toy moulds and copyrights were all bought by Hasbro.". collection: jw

Seydel until reunification in 1990. The "walking eye" logo of CBS was initiated in 1954

Double-Sided Tremolo" entry for an almost identical specimen, including the same border
pattern, "REG. TRADE MARK" and "MADE IN GERMANY" in frames, although strictly
speaking, it should have been labeled as made in the GDR if prior to 1990, but it is not
clear how strictly the designation was used at the time, and when exactly Seydel resumed
putting their name on the Bandmaster that is identical to the CBS Masterwork. jrw.

Curved Diatonic, $60, collection: hr Doerfel - Lovely Music

diatonic novelty with celluloid sliding cover, $95, 1900, - Presumed to be G. A. Doerfel Doerfel - Matchless
because of similarity in design to the Doerfel International. Functionality is quite different, Reversible Dust Proof
though. It is "Reversible" because the harp can be slid out of the celluloid cover and
reinserted backwards so that the comb blow/draw holes are up against the solid celluloid
and are therefore covered. This also explains the "Dust Proof" claim since the playing
holes are covered up. This is more a gimmick than a useful design because the delicate
celluloid outer cover is quite fragile. Note that unlike the Doerfel International, removing
the celluloid sheath does not give access to the reed plates, but rather there is a metal
cover plate between the celluloid outer shell and the reed plate, embossed also with
"Reversible Dust Proof". "Patent applied for". collection: jw

Diatonic, $39, - Patent No. 13362. The green book shows a similar trademark for Bohm Carl Essbach - Silver Reed,
and Carl Essbach, the sailing ship with a smokestack. This harp has two identical The - Richter
medallions with the ship. I determined that this ship resembles the Essbach more than
the Bohm because it has a very thick plume of smoke and 2 prominent mast-top flags
visible, whereas Bohm seems to have less of a plume and a single mast-top flag. Also,
Essbach has a crows nest on the forward mast whereas Bohm does not. This analysis
flies in face of the argument that Bohm has many different Silver Reed models and Carl
Essbach does not, and I haven't seen the ship trademark associated with Essbach (yet)
anywhere except in the green book.. collection: jw

Valkyrie. In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja "chooser of the slain")
is one of a host of female figures who decide which soldiers die in battle and which live.
Selecting among half of those who die in battle (the other half go to the goddess Freyja's
afterlife field Fólkvangr), the valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain,
Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin.

The Ride of the Valkyries (German: Walkürenritt or Ritt der Walküren) is the popular term
for the beginning of Act III of Die Walküre, the second of the four operas by Richard
Wagner that comprise Der Ring des Nibelungen. The main theme of the Ride, the leitmotif
labelled Walkürenritt, was first written down by the composer on 23 July 1851. The
preliminary draft for the Ride was composed in 1854 as part of the composition of the
entire opera, which was fully orchestrated by the end of the first quarter of 1856. Together
with the Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin, the Ride of the Valkyries is one of Wagner's best-
known pieces. (Wikipedia). collection: jw

Diatonic, $48, - Per Wikipedia: "Reg'lar Fellers was a long-run newspaper comic strip Gretsch - Reglar Fellers
adapted into a feature film, a radio series on NBC and an animated cartoon. Created by
Gene Byrnes (1889-1974), the comic strip offered a humorous look at a gang of suburban
children (who nevertheless spoke like New York street kids). Syndicated from 1917 to
1949".

Cartoon in the second row is from the DRWZ registry in which Geo. Borgfeldt registered
the art as a trademark in 1922.

It is not clear whether Gretsch used the "Reg'lar Fellers" name from the public domain,
with permission, or bought the harp from Borgfeldt (unlikely). collection: jw

Hohner - Chromatic, Chromatic, - This specimen, purchased on ebay from a German seller, is either a
Amadeus possible copy or knockoff or a non-production specimen.
old Differences from stock Amadeus: 1) no engraving on cover plates except for hole
numbers, 2) No "Hohner" on the back of the plexiglas comb, 3) Numbers 1-12 on the top
plate are dye-stamped from the top without a mate number dye having been placed
beneath the metal. 4) reed plate screws are slotted head, not Philips. 4) case slide latch is
in the reverse direction from the stock case.
Similarities to the stock Amadeus: 1) all parts are identical, appearing to have been
stamped with identical dies. 2) cover plates are non-ferrous, but have a small iron content
as tested with a magnet. 3) plated reed plate is non ferrous, 4) case, which may not be
original because of more apparent wear than the harp, has a convincing Trossingen bar
code label.
Knockoffs appear to include all of the labeling and cover plate engraving in order to be
convincing copies - see these sample web sites:

(262) Hohner - Chromatica in-line chromatic single reed blow, $154, 1935 - 2004, - As with all 262s, this is an all blow
262 unusual single reed per note in-line chromatic. All 35 reeds are on the top plate. There is no
bottom reed plate. This specimen is different from the standard 262 because it is twice as
deep and nearly twice as heavy. I opened it up to see why it was so wide (deep). The first
6 low reeds are mounted at the rear of the plate. There is no reason for this that I can tell
because there is plenty of room in the front of the reed plate. There is no model number
(262) die-stamped on this Chromatica which suggests that it was made different for some
purpose or is a very early specimen, perhaps before the 261 (octave tuned) and 263 (pair
of same pitch blow-draw reeds per note). Someone had lightly scratched "262/35" on the
top cover plate. The bottom cover plate is much narrower than the top plate and identical
to the bottom cover plates used on all 261-2-3 Chromaticas except, again, it does not
have the model number stamped on it. It is interesting that some of the reed plate nails
are the type with right angle hooks on the end as are used to hold removable reed strips in
accordions.. collection: jw

(3CND) Hohner - Concert Full concert, $35, - This is an early 3CND full concert - see page 11 of the Bruno 1902
Catalog C001. It is labeled "Concert" and not "Full Concert" although it is indeed a full
concert of the Knittlinger type. Old catalogs explain that a full concert harmonica is
designed to be played on either the top row (high octave) or the lower row (low octave) or
the top row for the melody and the bottom row for accompaniment; or both rows together
for an organ tone. An even earlier 3CND is in the McMillin 1898 catalog C002 on page
10. It is prior to the Hohner two-hand-and-star-in-circle trademark.
The 1898 3CND is described as "20 double holes - one side, genuine hohner concert. Two
sets reeds, brass reed plates, composition reeds, hand tuned in octaves, nickel sides, best
quality"
In attempting to decipher the "CND" of the model number, my theory is that the "C" is for
"Concert", the "N" is for "Nickel", and the "D" is for "Double". Later catalogs indicate that
the cover plates are "brass, finely plated with Nickel" and indeed THIS specimen is of that
variety with the nickel worn off and the brass showing in heavy wear areas, but the plating
could have been a change made after the original assignment of "CND". My lesser theory
is that the "CN" stands for "Concert" and nickel is not included in the model designation.

Later versions of the 3CND were described in the first decade of 20th century on the harp
as "Newest and Best Full Concert Harmonika" and on the box as "World Renowned".
Between the wars it became the "World Renown" on both the box and the harp - still
3CND and still full concert. Jrw 5-1-2010. collection: jw

Hohner - Helvetia Sportsman diatonic, - "During WWI, Hohner still wanted to sell harmonicas to the allied 'enemies' of
and My Darling .. Germany. At that time, they founded a company in Switzerland, brought some workers
and machines there and sold their instruments under the brand name 'Helvetia'. Maybe
the instruments were only assembled or packed in cases in Switzerland, very likely at
least the main parts of the instruments were still produced in Trossingen." --Peter

mountain in Switzerland. Note that you can see the chamois icon on the box, which was

Koch - Trumpet Organ Diatonic or full concert, 1910, - "Trumpet Organ" harmonica by Andreas Koch,
Trossingen, Germany, ca. 1910. Koch vied with Hohner in the production of novelty
harmonicas. This "horned" model was designed to compete with Hohner's extremely
popular "Trumpet Call." It features a slightly more complex arrangement of the five horns
than is found on Hohner's model. Ironically, the five horns are merely a facade, having no
function other than being decorative. Alan G. Bates Collection, 2000. Note that the box-
only (no harmonica) specimen bears an illustration of the rare 36-reed (9-hole) variation of
the full concert tuning.. collection: nmm hc gc

Full Concert with 10 grommets, $375, collection: hc Koch - Trumpet Organ

Diatonic; Faux concert organ pipe, $16-$116, - The comb holes look wide like a full Koch - Trumpet Organ
concert. Full concert harps have a blow and draw reed in the top hole and the same blow-
draw pair an octave higher in the lower hole. That's why the holes are wide. Inspection
indicates that there is a single reed per hole. With this model, it is even easier to tell that
it is not a full concert because each pipe in an "organ pipe" cover plate always protects the
reed(s) in the hole that it covers. These pipes are half as wide as the hole because there
is only a single reed, centered in each hole. There are 10 pipes, therefore it can be
assumed that there are only 10 reeds top and 10 reeds bottom, which can be verified by
inspection.
For genuine full concert harmonicas that use the organ pipe design, see the Weiss
Brass Band Clarion (full concert) and the Hohner Marine Band Echo (full concert). Note
particularly in the second row of photos for the Marine Band Echo, the first and fourth
photos show a reed on the edge of each hole/organ pipe. The second reed is on the other
edge of each hole but has its rivet at the other end of the hole and is therefore not visibile
because of the length of the reed. A single reed is always centered under the organ pipe,
not positioned at one edge or the other.. collection: jw js

authorities occupying controlled territories permitted the sale of toys with the markings
'Made in US Zone - Germany' or 'Made in Occupied Japan', regulated through the years
1946 and 1947. After the regulation was lifted, much of the same tooling was used, hence
the markings continued into the 1950's.. collection: jw

Double sided octave, $51, 1919, - Oktavstimmung fur berufsspieler (Professional Kohnstam - Sonata
Players). "Hartel, C. Max" found in the trademark book with first appearance in 1924, but I Knittlinger
don't think "Hartel" on the harp and box is the maker, but rather an endorser. DRWZ
271740, registered in the period of 1916 - 1921, in a large gap in the sequence of
numbers. Box has a property tag with number 756, side of comb has nails where a
property tag had been. Trademark is a Lyre with monogram MKN, with an open book like
a bible below, all within an open Garland. The MK are above with the "N" below, by itself.
I am guessing/assuming that MK is the maker (M. Kohnstam) and "N" is a place,
Nurenburg. Trademark 123079, 1909, in the Trademark Book, is registered to M.
Kohnstam, listing cities Furth and Nurenburg. I'm taking the N for Nurenburg. Although
indicated to be a Knittlinger, it is not a full concert, but rather a standard octave with one
reed per comb hole.
The M-joined-to-K Kohnstam monogram appears in DRWZ 25173 (1897) with the
Paragon model.. collection: jw

Tremolo, - MK monogram in circle twice, "The Victor" has blood dripping from T, V and Kohnstam - Victor, MK
r. "Steel Bronze Reeds", Solid Brass Plates; Maker presumed to be M. Kohnstam. See

Langhamer, Joh & Sohne
Diatonic with divided holes, 1870, - Hand-filed german silver reeds and german silver Langhamer - Concert
covers, brass reed plates but only a single rivet per reed (see the other Langhamers, all of
which have double rivets). collection: pn

unusual diatonic single reed plate, $70, - presumed to be Langhamer because of 1) the Langhamer - Unmarked
similarity to the Vienna Expo harmonica and 2) the use of double rivets to secure each
reed.
Unusual 8-hole tuning as follows:
Draw D F G B D F B F
Blow C E G C E G C E
Note that both draw octaves (and also hole 8) include F but not A, making for a G7 chord
anywhere on the harp in contradistinction to the Richter tuning which gives a G major on
draw at the bottom and a G7 on draw up to the F after middle C.. collection: jw

mouthpiece. collection: pn
330 Langhamer, Joh & Sohne Anthology 11.0 © 2019 John R. Whiteman 4/24/2019
Langhamer - Vienna Expo unusual diatonic single reed plate, $150, 1880, - single reed plate and single brass cover
plate; Langhamer used a single cover plate on many of his harmonicas. This harp has 2
reeds per hole and a standard Richter tuning, despite the single reed plate. Each reed is
attached to the reed plate by two rivets. See Stratton 1886 Catlog (C039) starting on
page 10.
Note that the trademark "J. Langhamer & Sohne" was registered by Doerfel in 1912. The
registration image shows an ampersand in a shield. This looks more like a "g" on the harp
pictured. See also the engraving image of a similar harmonica from the 1886 Stratton

double sided diatonic, $137, 1870, - wooden mouthpiece; very old. It was almost certainly Leiterd - unknown
made by Ernst Leiterd because of 1) 2 hands clasped like Hohner and Leiterd, 2) male
head in medallion on the left, 3) Gesetlich Geschutzt written out in full. Additional features
of the trademark include a central shield with a large 6-pointed star, a crown on top of the

Meinel - Challenger diatonic or double sided tremolo, $17-$53, - Reg Number: 267396 is on both "the metal
harp" diatonic with Schlossmeinel label and on the much older double sided tremolo which
only says "Challenger" (in addition to the Reg Number). It is therefore clear that the latter
is indeed Schlossmeinel. DRWZ 267396 was issued in 1919 or 1920. I always wonder
when a harp is named "Challenger" - Challenge what? I found this piece of information on
the web, which fits the time frame but not necessarily the Meinel motive: "Challenger, a
7953 gross ton freighter, was built in 1918 by the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Company at
Alameda, California, for the U.S. Shipping Board's Emergency Fleet Corporation. Upon
completion in early October 1918 she was turned over to the Navy, which placed her in
commission as USS Challenger (ID # 3630). Assigned to the Naval Overseas
Transportation Service, the ship made her maiden voyage to Chile, where she picked up a
cargo of nitrates for transportation to Pensacola, Florida. During January and February
1919 she took cargo to France. In early May 1919, after returning to the U.S., Challenger
was decommissioned and returned to the Shipping Board. Later operated by the American-
South African Line, she was torpedoed and sunk by the German submarine U-155 on 17
May 1942, while in the West Indies en route to Capetown, South Africa. Eight lives were
lost with her, among them two members of her U.S. Navy armed guard detachment.".

Diatonic or faux concert, $67-$195, 1905, - Both specimens are diatonic. One specimen Messner - Swee-Tone
has 10 large single holes, a curved mouthpiece, and the same curve on the trailing edge David's Harp
of the cover plate, which has a knife edge although it is bent up at an obtuse angle for
additional strength. The other specimen has 10d cosmetic wide double holes, a straight
mouthpiece, and the back of the cover plates curved side-to-side and the trailing edge is
crimped for strength.

The box lid of both says "U.S.Patent applied for.(Germany.)" The top cover plate of each
is stamped "Patent applied for [gap] Germany" The gap is over a cm wide. This is either
1) one expression in which a word has been removed or space has been reserved or 2)
two separate expressions, the second meaning "(made in) Germany". The latter theory
could also apply to the lid inscription but there might not have been room for physical
separation of the two expressions, so the maker resourcefully resorted to parentheses. It
is also curious that the "U.S." appears on the boxes but not the cover plates.. collection: jw

conclusive link between the "Orchestra" and "Concertone" brands. See complete story Contrabass
under the Orchestra / Concertone model "Concertone with Koch Monogram", which links
"Concertone" and "Koch". This is also a faux concert. The lower reed plate has all of the
diatonic blow and draw reeds. The upper reed plate is replaced by a solid brass plate with
4 holes to provide blow and 4 holes to provide draw to the bass and chord functions. The
forward manifold is valved to draw from the G chord and bass notes wheareas the rear
manifold is valved to blow into the C chord and bass notes. When the bass/chord
superstructure is closed, the two manifolds are sealed from each other. There is no
significance of there being 8 holes except to pass a lot of air. 2 holes (one blow and one
draw) would have been functionally adequate.. collection: jw

>From Bates collection database. Harmonica is at National Music Museum.


'A rare American-made model by a maker I didn't know existed. The comb and reed plate
ends are rounded with a single nail attaching the tabs to the comb. Top cover:"OVER-THE-
TOP / REG.U.S. PAT.OFF / PROFESSIONAL HARMONICA." Bottom: in the center
"MADE IN AMERICA / "Peerless" / MERIDEN, CONN." (I never heard of a maker in
Conn.) To either side is a floral wreath with "OVER / THE / TOP" in the center. The blue-
gray box has a picture of the harmonica on the top with the same legend as the top
harmonica cover. On one long side of the cover is "MADE IN AMERICA" and on the other
"BUY AMERICAN MADE [two words underlined] PRODUCTS." On both short ends of the
cover is a wreath with a capital P inside - probably for Peerless.

>From Bates paper collection database.


'This small insert was tucked inside a 1920 Lyon & Healy catalog. Research (and an
example of the harmonica in the Bates collection) shows this model was made by the

Fletcher, Corp. Co. H. 10th Vt. Vols. Nobody remembers if it was his, but there is good
chance of it. The letters were sold some years ago before the harmonica was found." In

like lady is waving the Union Jack. 1 pair of overlapping medallions has "Gegr" in one
circle and "1886" in the other, the founding year of A.A. Schlott. Saxony on the harp and
Germany on the box, which is not unusual. See Schlott Cello #1537 for similarities. I
think this was made by Schlott for Keith Prowse and Co.

Update: January, 2015 -- I just added Union Jack with Bells with same lady with Lion to
her right and wagon wheel to her left. Union Jack name was registered by A. A. Schlott in
1899, #36857, so it is probably appropriate for the Union Jack to be in a Cello Box.

Unusual chromatic, 1902, - Similar to the Vern Smith Hands Free Chromatic (HFC) except Rauner - Chromatic - A
that it does not appear to have been designed with the intent that it be played in a rack, Striking Novelty
rather just to avoid using a slide. DRWZ 53172 was issued in 1902. Reeds and reed
plates are made of steel. Includes the Rauner slogan "A Striking Novelty". Inspected by
Vern Smith, who made the following observations:

"I discovered some interesting things about it that would not have been otherwise
apparent:
- Steel reeds and plates!
- Springs too strong for easy playing, a design defect.
- Vertical motion longer than needed. This is the lack of a refinement available in my HFC.
- Mouthpiece in the "up" position does not completely block air from the lower reeds, a
manufacturing defect.
- The tuning layout that covers 2.8 octaves in 8 holes, has a blow-C chord, and raises the
pitch of all natural notes by a half=tone when the mouthpiece is pushed down.
- Leakiness that arises from age and abuse.

"The important thing about this harp is that it was designed for playing chromatic music
and not for merely changing keys.

"I speculate that the design goal was to avoid the cost and complexity of a metal slide

Richter, Johann ("Joh")


4/24/2019 Anthology 11.0 © 2019 John R. Whiteman Richter, Johann ("Joh") 439
diatonic, $370, - Double sided 12-hole diatonic that is only 3-1/2" x 1-5/8" (9.4cm x J Richter - Diatonic, very old
4.3cm). Key of Gb/F# and Key of B share a single upper reed plate and a single lower
reed plate. The low-pitched reeds of one key are opposite the high-pitched reeds of the
other key. This allows for the very narrow 1-5/8" width of this double sided harmonica but
requires the player to flip to the other key by rotating the harmonica on its vertical axis -
you get used to it!

Presumption of manufacture by Johann Richter is weakly based on a similar but very


elegant signed set of Johann Richter harmonicas in the database row "Various Richter
Harmonicas"

The blow reeds are attached proximal to the mouth piece and the draw reeds are attached
distal. The harmonica is in reasonably good tune and from the examination of the reeds
visible through the mouthpiece, it appears to have been tuned (bright scratch marks) and
to have had a few reeds replaced (unoxidized rivets) in the not too distant past. Reed
plates are brass and cover plates are a plated non-ferrous metal. Mouthpiece is either
ivory or bone. Both ends of the harmonica originally had a decorative cover over the end
nails although only one remains. This end cover is reminiscent of the end pieces
(crosses) attaching the harmonicas in a kreuzwender. Mouthpiece holes are 13/64"
(0.203", 5.16mm) in diameter and not precisely spaced or aligned. Tuning is shown below.

Rolz - Piano Melodie Unique Chromatic Tremolo Design, $1, - DRWZ 373022, which appears on the box, was
Harmonica - Piano issued to Reinhold Friedel on 8-19-1927 (see entry in the trademark book), although the
Harmonica bottom cover plate of the harp bears the distinct name and trademark of Hans Rolz. "DRP
& Aust. P." is on the box, "D.R.P. u. A. P." is on the upper cover plate, and "Importer -
High Grade German and Austrian Harmonicas" is on the distributor's label in the box lid.
Comb has 3 zones: the central zone is made up of 16 double holes forming a diatonic
tremolo with Richter tuning. The zone to the left of this has 7 double (tremolo) holes
labeled as C#, D#, F, F#, G#, A, and A#(Bb) in BDBDBDB order with the accidentals and
the F and A that are missing from the low octave of the Richter tuning. The zone to the
right has 5 double holes labeled as C#, D#, F#, G#, and A#(Bb) in BDBDB order. This is
distinctly different from the DRWZ trademark image which illustrates a straightforward in-
line polyphonia-type chromatic arrangement.
Box has a property sticker on it, hand printed in European arabic numerals: "No. 87016".

Rothschild, Joseph Jr.


4/24/2019 Anthology 11.0 © 2019 John R. Whiteman Rothschild, Joseph Jr. 453
solo tuned diatonic, $20, - "10 reeds" on box and on harp. There are 10 reeds on the Rothschild - Waltz Dream
upper reed plate; the lower reed plate has no reeds.

No maker is indicated on the box or harp, but I have concluded that the maker is Joseph
Rothschild Jr, the same as for the Walzertraum for this reason:

1) "Walzertraum" translates to "Waltz Dream", the name of this harp


2) "Original Wiener Tanzmusik" on the Walzertraum's box and cover plates translates to
"Original Vienna dancing music" as printed on this harp's box. collection: jw

Diatonic, $22, - Genuine Richter Louee Special for Professional Players DRWZ 102676. Rothschild - Waltz Dream
See explanation and analysis under "Walzertraum". collection: jw

Double sided tremolo, $83, 1907, - This has the same name (when translated) as the BD Rothschild - Walzertraum
Waltz Dream and both have the DRWZ 102676, granted in 1907, although this harp (Waltz Dream)
indicates it is the Gesetzlich Geschutzt (Pat Missin has told me that it is legitimate to use
the DRWZ to prove the design protection.)

The trademark on the Harp reads "J.R.JR.F." and on the box it is "J.R.Jun Fr.". I referred
to a spreadsheet that my daughter, Gaby, compiled from the Trademark Book. This
spreadsheet lists information once for every unique Maker Name, even if it is a variation of
the spelling or content of what appears to be the same maker. There are 500 entries in
this table.

The entry in Gaby's table that is pertinent is that for "Rothschild Jr., Joseph" of "Frankfurt
am Main". The next entry in the table is "Rothschild, Gustav & Comp.", also of "Frankfurt
am Main". The first trademark entry for Joseph ("Junior") is #152949, "Joro", registered in
1911. The first trademark entry for Gustav (presumably "Senior" or even a sibling) is
#189534, "Strubel", registered in 1914.

I am reasonably certain that the analysis indicating Joseph Rothschild as the maker is
valid. It would follow, since BD was a distributor, that the BD Waltz Dream - with the
same DRWZ, was made for BD by Joseph Rothschild.. collection: jw

irrigation system which consists of more than 200 small channels (called "Fließe"; total

468 Schlott, A.A. Anthology 11.0 © 2019 John R. Whiteman 4/24/2019
Schlott - Semeuse, La Double sided tremolo, $153, 1937, - "Semeuse Roty" was a lady sower sowing seeds
against the wind as depicted on the harp and also a stamp issued in France in 1937,
previously as early as 1903. box says tremolo concert, so does back of harp, so they go
together. "Importe d'Allemagne" indicates "imported from Germany". Property tag on end
of comb has number "278". The border design on this box is almost identical in areas to a
design used in various forms by Bohm, Koch, Hohner, Meinel & Herald, and probably
others. The line of award mediallions - large at both ends and decreasing in size towards
the center of the line is used by Hohner and M Spranger. All of this notwithstanding, the
image of the woman and "La Semeuse" was registered in the DRWZ as #120413 in 1909
by Schlott - see entry in the Trademark book.. collection: jw

Siamese Full concert Dur and Moll clad, $125, - Sinfonia may be a different brand that (8409) Schlott - Sinfonia Dur
used Schlott harps to construct its product. On the box, it has an un-Schlott trademark of und Moll Orchestrion
a circle with an "M" constructed of two eighth notes above another eighth note and with 5
vertical lines extending horizontally from each side of the circle. On the harp it says
"Schlott Orchester" and has the Fortuna trademark between the two words, but the
"Fortuna" text has been blanked out. Otherwise the cover plate seems to have been made
with the same die as the Schlott diatonic "Deutsche Meisterschafts Klange". collection: jw

with both grommets and organ pipes. The 6 grommets are decorative only, whereas the

the important and effective purpose of preventing collapse of the cover plate on to the
reeds themselves.. collection: jw dd

metal protect

Schunk - Sanitamonica - Tremolo clad, $4-$88, - clad comb - all dividers are made of metal. Name
metal protect "Sanitamonica" probably derived from "Sanitary" because of clad comb being cleaner than
a wood comb. This is just as unappealing a harmonica model name as Hohner's
"Hygienica". Note: because of the joining of the top of the "S" and the cross of the "T",
most people mistake the "T" for an "L" and refer to it as a "Sanilamonica". This is
incorrect, but probably accounted for the model's greater prevalence than the Hohner
"Hygienica". Specimen in second row is from from Joachim Plaschke. collection: jw

It is going to get a lot of attention. It is a Seydel Harp named "Emmet Harp" and "Silver
Tongued Richter" with a GG by signed A Richter Co. Haidau. and is coarsely stamped
with Made in Germany on both sides. Left medallion has words to be studied and roman
numerals starting with MDCCC. Right medallion has Vitam … An undisclosed collector
responded to Rob Langdon's inquiry as shown below. I (jrw) agree with most of the
analysis except the 1920s date is impossible because Anton Richter and J. Emmet were
both from the late 19th century. I need to follow up. The "Made in Germany" is crudely
stamped after the fact of the fine die stamp/embossing used for the rest of the graphics on
the cover plates, making me think it was a label added in compliance with the British
Merchandise Marks Act 1887. My opinion is that this specimen dates from the 1890s,
and is consistent with the A. Richter display (1885/90) certificate (The Silver tongued
Richter, A. Richter & Co., Haidau, identical medallions) on page 130 of Martin Haffner's
green book.
jrw 1-22-2011

The following is on the mytreasurespot.com discussion of the reed plates, by a harmonica


collector, as quoted by Rob Langdon, a Civil War relic collector:

"Ok, that is an awesome piece! Where was it dug?


The wood that is gone would have been beech.
The historical significance I see to it is that Seydel supposedly made the Richter
harmonicas in Haida (it's in the Czech Republic), but actually they were made in the
Seydel factory in Klingenthal... To me, this confirms absolutely that they did, since there is
Richter on one side and Seydel on the other. I find it interesting it says made in Germany.
If they ever did have a satellite in Haidau, they weren't operating it at the time this was
made. that also lends credence to the possibility they never were made in Haidau in the
first place.
It's also in the key of D, which is somewhat rare. C and G would be far more common. It's
also a little bit of a confirmation that the word "harp" was used for the harmonica at the
time it was made.

"When you try to figure out a manufacture date for a harmonica, you look at technology,
manufacturer and political clues.
Here is the political history: Seydel is a Klingenthal company. Klingenthal is in Saxony.
Germany was unified in 1870. Under the Second Reich (1870 - 1919), was more of a
confederation of various kingdoms and the Prussian empire, much the same way the U.S.
states were before the Civil War, with the exception there was one dominant state -
Prussia - in the German confederation and some kingdoms, duchies and whatnot were
tied to the Second Reich only loosely.
Saxony operated as an autonomous country almost within the German Empire until the
Weimar Republic was created after World War I.

"Was this made at the time of the Civil War? Absolutely not.
First clue (political): It says "made in Germany." Germany did not exist until the founding
of the Second Reich in 1870.
Second clue (political): It says "made in Germany." Since Saxony operated as an
autonomous state, all Seydel harmonicas before the early 1920s say "made in Saxony."
Third clue: There are no grooves in the top of the reedplate for the coverplates to fit into.
That was a development that came in the early 1930s.
Fourth Clue: The coverplates (where the mouth goes) don't gently slope down, they come
down in a dip, come back up and then slope down quickly. That's something you see
more in harmonicas from before World War I and immediately after.

"All that considered, I'd say it was made in the early 1920s."

a followup post on the same discussion:

"This harmonica would date to the period of time in the Seydel story where they were just
getting over World War I and the loss of all their overseas markets. This would have been
part of the rebuilding of the U.S. market during the harmonica boom of the mid 1920s.
This harmonica did not appear in the 1923 Seydel U.S. catalog. Thus, I would say this
harmonica was made somewhere between 1924 and 1929. That dip and lack of
coverplate groove would make me think they were reusing an old pre-World War I die
(dies are expensive) for the back coverplate. And made a new one for the front so they
could have a new model. It has the same reed plates as the Bandmaster, their flagship
instrument from 1898 to World War II, but that's not unusual.". collection: unk

spectacular! Please see our other CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS & a 20TH MAINE CAMP CHAIR
we are also offering right NOW! Also see our other auctions & BUY IT NOW listings."

Analysis by a Civil War historian, courtesy of Pat Missin:


“Tintype was around from the Civil War into the early 20th century; especially at
boardwalks and carnivals in the early 1900's. I have seen many tintype photos taken in
the early 1900's. These early 1900's photos were a novelty; usually photos of friends,
family, etc.
The coat does not look like a military uniform; at least militia or army.The presence of a
side pocket and the cut of the lapel looks more civilian to me.
I could be wrong, but I would venture to say late 1800's. It would not surprise me if the
entire scene (drum, shrubbery, hat and harmonica) is a photo prop (a scene offered by the
photographer for his clients). Of course, we would not know that for certain, unless
another photo is found with the same scene setup.”. collection: unk

Double sided tremolo, $61, - very old; The Austria-Hungary empire existed from 1867 to Unk - Deutsche Industrie
1918, during which period each country maintained its own coat of arms as well as
sharing a common coat of arms. This looks very much like the Austrian and Common
(shared) coat of arms which is included in the photos for this harmonica. What I can see
is a double-headed eagle with a crown; the dual items below the crown could be either the
eagle heads or the crown's tassles. The feet of the eagle can almost be seen. The
sceptre and orb are not evident. The shield is shaped like a US Hiway sign and contains
between 3 and 5 icons. One seems to be a cross. There are oak clusters on both sides of
the coat of arms which may have nothing to do with the coat of arms and perhaps
belongs to the "Deutsche Industrie" - they are similar to the oak clusters seen on some old
German coins.. collection: jw

impression that the harmonica can be played from either side, but doing so would reverse
the blow and draw notes - which, of course, with a toy probably doesn't matter. Deisgn is
similar to the cylindrical wood models of Bruckbauer & Breinesl and Wilhelm Thie..

Klaxon Horn, $119, 1908, - Lovell McConnell Mfg. Co. Lovell McConnell Klaxon
Newark, NJ USA
s/n 17415; Patent dates 1899, 1902, 1908.
Klaxon is a trademark for an electromechanical horn or alerting device. Mainly used on
automobiles, trains and ships, they alert listeners of the vehicle's arrival and possible
danger. The Klaxon's characteristic "AH-OOOOH-GAH!" sound is produced by a spring-
steel diaphragm with a rivet in the centre that is repeatedly struck by the teeth of a rotating
cog-wheel. The diaphragm is attached to a horn which acts as an acoustic transformer as
well as controlling the direction of the sound. In the first klaxons, the wheel was driven
either by hand or by an electric motor. (The electric version has been credited to inventor
Miller Reese Hutchinson, an associate of Thomas Edison. The Lovell-McConnell
Manufacturing Co. of Newark, New Jersey bought the rights to the device in 1908 . F. W.
Lovell, the founder, coined the name klaxon from the Greek verb klaz, "to shriek". Klaxons
were first fitted to automobiles and bicycles in 1908.. collection: jw

stamped with "Made in Rep. of Ireland". This harp and box appeared in the 1939 Hohner
catalog as "made in Germany", so this particular harp was made by Hohner in exile in
Ireland during WWII. A harp featuring a British landmark would certainly not have been
produced in Germany at that time. Note: Weiss was bought by Hohner in 1929, but the
Weiss name still used as long as it sold more harps, so this is a "Hohner model".

Weiss - Ocarina Modulation diatonic resonator, 1900, - Per Doug Dawson: The box has a picture of the founder of the
Harp Weiss company along with 4 paragraphs explaining how great this harmonica is. One
paragraph states, “It is everybody’s delight to listen to the music of such a modulating
Mouth Harmonica. Wether you take a trip down to the briny sea or join with puty in
beanfeast glee if you wish to be free from fit of depression you must have Weiss’ Ocarina
in your possession.” (spelling mistakes are original)
The box has the DRGM registration number 158357 which would date it to 1911. The
other advertising on the box states that “One single machine will turn out daily 1,500
Reed Plates of an absolute perfect and fine quality. Thirty such machines will produce
over thirteen millions Reed Plates annually”. DRGM 158357 approximately 1911..

Butterfly TM Kawai was in charge of building his first pianos and the first year had built 2. In 1903 he
was up to 23 pianos and in 1908 he built his first grand piano. He even sent one of his
pianos to the St. Louis Worlds Fair in 1904 in Forest Park where he received an honorary
prize. By 1912 he was up to 1000 employees and 10,000 reed organs and 1,200 pianos a
year. In 1914 he began producing the "Butterfly" brand of harmonicas and Yamaha began
to diversify. It had begun to give Japan its first major export. Because the Hohner
harmonica was made in Germany his harmonicas got a windfall of sales in WW. In 1916
Torakuso died suddenly leaving a void that became filled with the same enterprising spirit
as Torakuso. In 1930, the company brought in engineers form Bechstein to assist in

Zwahlen - Aeolina 3 chord, $6800, - Æolina (chord harmonica) by Lewis Zwahlen, New York, ca. 1831. This
unpretentious-looking little instrument, on which one can play chords in C, D, and G, is
one of the earliest harmonicas known to survive. There are sixteen brass reeds, one reed
per hole, with a wood casing on the top and the reed plate exposed below. The few other
surviving examples were made in Europe and none to our knowledge has an original
cardboard box, which is lined, in this instance, with blue silk and carries the label, Sold at
The Depository of the Arts, Bourne's, 359 Broadway, New-York. A second cardboard flip-
top box (not shown) fits over the first box and has a red shoestring tie. Alan G. Bates
