Beautiful collection. The artistry that went into those devices is stunning.

This was actually my grandfather. I am so glad you see the beauty he did. The entire collection is actually 20X larger than what is in the museum...maybe bigger. There are many duplicates of these items as well. It is amazing he, one man, was able to upkeep the entire thing, but unfortunately my family is unable to do so. Each grandchild and great-grandchild now have many pieces of the collection and several of us are buying even more of the pieces that we treasure to help sustain my grandmother. In fact, my husband and I are purchasing their home to keep it in our family. This collection is really so much more amazing in person.

Please see my comment under the story that goes with these pictures. The comments here and with the story should be kept together - and that is the newspaper's fault, not pywacket.

It is a beautiful collection which should be kept together for the future generations to appreciate.
