Antique Parlor Reed Pump Organ made by George Woods & Co. Partially restored by my mother, who became too busy to finish it. I have all the materials and organ peices, but no time or skill to complete the restoration.

I have not found serial numbers on it (other than 18189 marked inside, and another decal listing patent dates), but it is very similar to an organ listed on the Reed Organ Society's website with the rejistration number 1928 (conduct an advanced search of their ROS Database by rejistration number).

Does not currently play. Restored parts are in beautiful condition, and it is a lovely peice of furniture. The body of the organ appears to be complete. All of the 'insides' have been removed and stored in two boxes, along with paint, stencils, and new materials and parts to replace those that were damaged (mainly thin dowels and the bellows). I believe that I have all of the peices, but not knowing anything about organs, cannot guarantee that.

Asking $200 OBO. Please email if interested in looking at the organ and all of the materials or with questions, though as I said, I know rather littel about this organ.

Note: I will delete this listing as soon as the organ is sold. untill that time, it is available. Any emails refering to the "item" will be deleted, as I will assume they are scams.
