1871 Melodeon ( Small in size ) 54 x25 x 32
This is not a Piano
It is a reed Organ
Rebuilt Bellows / Refinished
This is a beautiful melodeon built by George A. Prince in 1871. These instruments are small reed organs that are operated by pumping the large iron right pedal…the left pedal is volume control and operates a swell shutter. Prior to the Civil War, these little melodeons were often the only form of musical entertainment in Rural America. This melodeon is made of solid Rosewood with elegantly carved legs and carved moldings. These early instruments are very rare, and potentially quite valuable.
