Pattern B

Spieldose / music box

Fig. 30-30B is the same pattern but not used as a tune sheet. It has a poignant message about the life of a child called Maggie (the diminutive of Margaret), remembered by someone called J. Marrugg. Did the person who saved her die? Was Marrugg the parent? The mystery may never be solved but the memory lives on. Fig. 30-30B. Same pattern as Fig. 30-30A but used to commemorate the saving of a child´s life. (Bellamy: Tuneheets Makers Agents (2022), p. 30/9, Fig. 30/30 B)

Pattern A

Spieldose / music box

Fig. 30-30A. Post 1882, a tune sheet for a small box with snuffbox-type movement. (Bellamy: Tuneheets Makers Agents (2022), p. 30/9, Fig. 30/30 A)
