This "XXe siecle" (20th century)  model 1903 machine was given away (Pour rien = for nothing) with the purchase of 100 standard size cylinders.  To lower the construction fees, the cabinet is made of cheap white wood wrapped with dark blue paper.  The lid has no fixation nor handle.   Notice the rare Hungrian cylinder box from Budapest.
