Database Manager on August 06, 2014:

Updated through online information from Scot Huntington. -- The chamber-organ sized case was hidden behind a heavy dossal curtain. The keydesk with square-shanked knobs in vertical rows was recessed into the case behind sliding doors. The organ had a single wedge-shaped feeder filling a single floating-top wedge reservoir. The half-round wooden dummy pipes were gilded. The organ disappeared some time after 1980.
