I saw this organ at the Thrift Store today,
and fell in love with it!
Those great trim boards top and front.
And the cover was a bonus!!
I didn't even know it had one till I'd bought it.
I tried to remember to take photos as we took it all apart,
but of course got busy and forgot.
But here is the key board ......
(Someone has now told me these are called "stops".)
In the picture above you can see how far they go back...maybe 6" or so.
Here is the unit, with the name on it....
Marchal & Smith. New York. University Organ.
This company was established in the 1850's, and closed
in the 1920's.
Got the keyboard out...
this will be a totally cool sign....or several.
Maybe write across top....Sing, Dance, Play...
or cover with music paper first...decisions.
I think it is about 3' wide.
These are the panels from the back.
Two great chalk boards to me....
What would you do with them???
My sweet fella, working away helping me....
How about a smile sweetie??....
This was inside. Not sure what it did either,
but it was somehow connected to one of the 'stops'.
but can you read the info on it??
A.H. Hammond & Co.
Patent Nov 6, 1888
These are the pedals.....love them.
Will take them off base and sell separately.
Here are more thingies... really dusty here...
Little sticks fell off in process...
Here are same thingies all cleaned up.....
and close up of them too. no idea what they did,
but I'm sure someone will think of something
wonderful to do with them.
Thanks for visiting.
