For Sale  Cornish Reed Organ  

A working but rather battered harmonium that I hope will give another family as much fun as it has given us.
We are in South Wales, in Swansea. The harmonium came from New York and has the date 1860 inside.
It was the chapel instrument at our local place of worship until it sadly closed twenty years ago.
I rescued it and we have all thoroughly enjoyed playing it, but it is simply taking up too much room now.

SOLD  Mason & Hamlin Reed Organ

 Single keyboard pump organ - made by Mason & Hamlin Organ Company. 

The dimensions are 131 cm wide, 60 deep and 101 high (in imperial 4'3" x 2'1" x 3'31/2").
It is actually an organ I believe (blowing out rather than sucking in).
It's been in the same spot for the last 35 years -  having previously been bought on a whim
by the owner's grandmother and then used mostly as a plant holder for 20 years.

 Stops: auto swell, 1 diapason, 2 viola, vox humana (with separate on and off pulls), 2 flute, 1 melodia, and euphone solo

The organ will need restoring as some of the stops don't work
The fabric between the pedals and bellows has been fixed (with non-traditional pink leather - not visible...)
but it definitely needs some TLC.

Happy to have £30 or offers -
Buyer must collect or arrange collection from SE14, South London as soon as possible.
