Single-manual reed organ (free)
Built by the Chicago Cottage Organ  Co. probably between 1880 and 1900.  Purchased in 1948 – always stored indoors.  The bellows work.  Some minor reed repairs needed.   44” W X 23″ D X 49″ H. The false work on top adds 29” H. Total 78” H.  Case very good to excellent condition.  No broken or missing parts. 12 draw knobs (three labeled couplers), 9 stop knobs, 61 keys;  single manual.  With all draw knobs pulled, three keys in the top octave do not sound – reeds of that pitch need attention.  Some of the remaining keys sound on only one or two reeds, indicating the need for further restoration. The tuning, however, is fine. Located in Vermont.  Email. (posted 7/25/2017)
