DESCRIPTION

This unusual instrument was built by the Cornish Piano & Organ Company in Washington, NJ in 1903. These instruments are rather uncommon, and were only made a few years. As the upright piano took favor over the pump organ in the American home, manufacturers tried to revive interest in their organs by building them in piano-style cabinets. Although most parlor organs had 5 or 6 octave keyboards, most Piano-Cawed Reed Organs had full 88 note keyboards. The large left and right pedals are used for pumping, and the middle pedal is used as the swell. This organ is made of mahogany wood and is in original, excellent condition. It comes with an authentic, matching organ stool.
