Unrestored Gately Melodia organette. The reeds are in place, and it does squack somewhat when you press the bellows.There is part of one roll sitting in it.
Original finish and decals are quite nice.
For some reason when I restore pneumatic instruments they always wind up worse than when I started. This is a talent not shared with many others, and I guarantee even if you have not rebuilt an organette before that your restoration will be superior to mine. Buy this Melodia now, and save it from a hideous fate.
We buy, sell, and repair antique phonographs and music boxes.
Pick-up and delivery possible in many parts of the midwest,south, and northeast.
