Autograph Musical Quotation Signed

"Alfred Cellier". 2.25" h x 8" w. In very good condition. Some paper remnant at left margin (affecting the edge of one photograph).
A two-bar quotation from Cellier's The Sultan of Mocha, which the composer has signed on a long card with two photos of him laid down at either end.
English composer, orchestrator, and conductor Alfred Cellier is best remembered for his association with Gilbert and Sullivan, for whom he directed several works and composed some overtures. His own shows were also quite successful, though. The Sultan of Mocha premiered in 1874 and became one of Cellier's earliest hits, enjoying multiple revivals within his lifetime.
