National Automatic Music Company

This is a unique player piano that was made and sold for bar rooms, ice cream parlors and hotels.
Equipped with a very rare attachment, the diorama of mechanical dogs racing was put in the piano at the factory and was intended for "Amusement Purposes Only".  When properly adjusted, the dog race is completely random.
