Neat 10 stop Malcolm organ with high back and two mirrors.
This organ has been in the family for at least four generations but times move on
and needing to downsize would prefer to pass on to someone rather than skip it.
It hasn't been played for a long time so may only be suitable for a rebuild project or spares.
Free, but you would need to collect from Peterborough, Cambs
Music books seen on the organ may also be available.
If interested, please email.

Looking for Jenny Lind's Harmonium
The famous singer Jenny Lind had a six octave portable harmonium made by Theodore-Achille MÜLLER 42, rue de la Ville l'Evêque, Paris. It was given to Jenny Lind in 1849 by Salis Schwabe and bequeathed by Jenny Lind’s daughter, a Mrs Raymond Maude in 1935 to the Children’s Hospital in Norwich, which bears the name of Jenny Lind as she was the foundress in 1854 after playing some charity concerts in the city to raise the money. The Harmonium was received and apparently in pride of place in the hospital until at least 1975
when the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital merged with the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital.
You can see a similar instrument below, hear it being played here on YouTube
and see some details at www.buser.org
The hospital would now like to trace the harmonium. If you own it or know of its wherabouts please contact Richard
Gone to Good Home Dominion Reed Organ
Dominion organ & Piano Company reed organ made in Bownanville, Ontario, Canada.
Sold by Robert Stather of Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park.
No idea of age but I think maybe 1900's.
It is 22" deep by 75" high and 44" wide. It is lovely and decorative but it needs some tlc
as it has been in my conservatory and the varnish has peeled off
and there is a bit of water staining on the stool and top. The foot pump still works though and the piano keys.
The stop knobs are:
Diapason, Bassoon, Sub Bass, Bass Coupler, 1 Forte, one with a label missing (probably Vox Humana),
11 forte, Treble Coupler, Vox Angelica, Echo and Melodia.
Stool is included with the organ, but not the glass vases.

Forte, Trumpet, Flute Dolce, Flute, Celeste, Clarone, Vox Angelet, Melodia, Treble Coupler.
