    Perforated paper roll designed to play the waltz from the musical comedy “House of Three Girls” (Dreimäderlhaus) by Franz Schubert-Heinrich Berthe is wrapped around “pin-end” standard spool (with metal semi-axes. One of them is rounded, the other one has radial ledges for fixing the playing device drive in the axis slot) with plastic flanges. The tape leader has triangular cut with the end glued with black leatherette with metal ring. Pink color label in artistic frame is on the roll-cropped surface. It indicates the catalog number, the title of the work and the composer’s name. The perforated roll contains the coded record of the control actions sequence on the musical machine for the tune playback.

    The roll is stored in a parallelepiped cardboard case consisting of white base and lid glued over with a burgundy binding material. Wooden inserts for fixing perforated rolls are fixed inside the case base.
