This organ is obviously older than the existing building and is second-hand to the church. The 
original home of the organ is unknown.

The organ is in near-original shape. Except for the provision of electric blowing, there 
have apparently been no changes made to the instrument. It still retains the original gilding 
and stenciling on the pipes in the fa├žade.

The keydesk projects from the case. The stop knobs are in unterraced jambs flanking the 
keyboard and have square shanks and flat faces lettered in a shaded Italic. The manual stop 
knobs have no pitch lengths.

The six pipes in the outer flats are speaking pipes from the Montre. The pies in the center 
flat are dummies.
