Rock & Co

These small mid-Victorian music scores, surrounded by a pretty embossed border, are cut out from the pages of a scrap album and bear the name of London publishers Rock & Co. Measuring only 83 x 57mm (3¼ x 2¼in) the music appears to be part of a larger item.

Q Has anyone seen these before and knows what they are from?
