The significance of
a Royal Appointment
The Royal Appointment is an honor reserved byevery regal
personage for those industrial leaders whose products'by unques
tioned merit, have earned this distinguished mark of royal approval.
A Royal Appointment to the subjects of a ruler is an indi
cation of unusual excellence. None but the best is good enough
for royalty quality is the only consideration.
A Royal Appointment to Americans is very significant be
cause it indicates a selection under the highest competitive circum
stances, where merit stands alone.
The Pianola honored
A single Royal Appointment, or several, may not-be of com
manding significance. But a practically unanimous preference,
such as has been accorded Aeolian-Pianola instruments, is an en
dorsement so absolute and unqualified that few, indeed, are the in
stances where superiority has been so marked as to win it.
Upon no other American manufacturer certainly no other
manufacturer of musical instruments have so many or such dis
tinguished honors been conferred as upon the Aeolian Company.
Although ihe Pianola and other Aeolian instruments are the choice of Royalty
and of the cultured everywhere, they are by no means the most costly. The great
Aeolian organization has so powerfully applied scientific management, quantity
production and other important methods which tend to reduce costs, that Aeolian
instruments today represent not only highest quality, but also greatest value lot? est
