    100-year-old self-playing violin orchestrion - video and photo

    The Hupfeld Phonoliszt Violina. Made in 1907 in Germany by Ludwig Hupfeld. This was not a standalone build, but rather a commercial orchestrion, sold for 20 years. About 60 exist today, valued around $500,000 each.



    There are three violins, although only a single string on each one is bowed.
