La Buffalo

Post by clansman »

Hi all
I recently got hold of this. Bits missing and broken. Just wondered if anyone knows anything about it. If anyone has pics of the inside workings would be great.

Nice find and a rare one. C. 1912, maker unknown, "classic appearance but mechanism specific to this model" (Jean Lemaitre, Les Machines a Sous, page 114). Nevertheless, I assume it has something in common with other French roulettes of the period.

That's a J&M (German) roulette - probably cribbing ideas from Bussoz. :!?!:

Thanks guys. Not much of the mechanism left. I've got the figure - looks like an Indian.
