The organ has been in my possession since about 1963,

The instrument is basically sound, but some attention will need to be given to the bellows,
and a number of pallets where spring adjustment is needed.

The instrument is currently located in Melton Mowbray.
The buyer must collect, and assist in dismantling and removal.

No reasonable offer refused for the organ.

I also have for sale a brand new exhauster intended for the instrument, but never used. It cost £350, and I would accept offers near to that.

Free to Good Home Bell Reed Organ
In need of restoration, it was made by Bell Organ & Piano Company, Guelph, Ontario, Canada. 
It was passed on to my father from a relative. It was in good working order and played regularly
(my piano practice) until at least 1990, not sure when it actually stopped working
but the pedals are flat on the floor so might just be the pedal straps that have gone.
It is a nice piece of furniture but needs some TLC as it's a bit worn in places
and some of the decorative beading on the side is missing.
The lid has also had a piece break off and stuck on again,
but as it's in the top righthand corner it only shows when the lid is closed.

Stop List:
Diapason 8, Dulcet 8, Sub Bass 16, Bass Coupler, Vox Humana, Forte,
Treble Coupler, Echo 8, Celeste 8, Dulciana 8, Melodia 8

The organ is in Weston-super-Mare, N. Somerset, BS23.

Free to a Good Home  Marlborough Reed Organ

We have to find this beautiful instrument a new home very quickly

Marlborough harmonium/parlour organ  Date of manufacturer is unsure, 1900 approx.

It is all in one piece with carrying handles attached to the side                                                    
Timber is sound but the bellows needs repair. Currently not working.

It has 11 stops and the names are all still very clearly defined in Gothic script:
Sub Bass 16ft
Diapason Bass 8ft
Piano 8ft
Bass Coupler
Forte
Vox Humana
Forte (again?)
Treble Coupler
Echo 8ft
Diapason Treble 8ft
Vox Celeste 8ft

Some of the wooden finials at the top have been knocked off the top and poorly repaired at some point - but it is all complete.
I have put them back in place for the photo.  The 3 mirrors are all intact - no cracks. The poor thing needs some repairs and t.l.c.
We have it's key and a matching stool that is being treated for woodworm (and currently kept well away from the organ itself)

Original owners inscription in the timber above keyboard: John Andrewartha OBE 1866-1935.  We do know quite a bit of John Andrewartha's history:  He was an engineer who worked on submarines in Devonport Dockyard, Plymouth during  WW1. He was awarded his OBE for saving the crew of a test submarine that got lodged in a sandbank underwater.  If you take the project on we can furnish you with his history and copies of photos/ephemera relating to him and the story of how he saved the submarine and crew.

When he died the harmonium came to his daughter in Castle Cary, Somerset .When she died in 1967 it was donated to the Chapel of rest in the cemetary in Castle Cary where it was played during services for over 40 years. It was then returned to John Andrewartha's Granddaughter who now moving to a small flat and sadly no longer has room for it.

If you need any more details please get in touch. I can email any more detailed photos if required
It would need to be collected unless you are nearby in Somerset in which case something could be arranged
It has to go by 1 March and we will consider all offers

For Sale: Mason & Hamlin Reed Organ

Location: Connecticut, USA
Beautiful reed organ, worthy of both
play and display, with a cabinet of exquisite black walnut, adorned with
gold leafing and red lining, manufactured in the late eighteen hundreds
by Mason & Hamlin- a well respected piano company ranked among the
Bosendorfers preferred by Brahms, Liszt and Bartok.  Equipped with
pressure bellows, as constitute harmoniums, to vary the output of volume
and dynamic levels.  Thirteen stops, including the Vox Humana, afford a
sweet and nuanced range of timbres.  Formerly the private property of a
cello teacher with ties to Pablo Casals and Stradivarius violins, it
graces any home with quiet charm and usefulness.  Viewing in the month
of May, by appointment.   Note: Dedicated amateurs with few funds are
invited to offer a manageably low price.
