You are bidding on an absolutely stunning and all original Beckwith pump organ, from Chicago Illinois. This item is fresh out of a local estate auction and is in absolutely beautiful all original condition (to the best of my knowlege). I do not know very much about these antique instruments, but I can tell you, you will be very hard pressed to find one much nicer. This organ is about 83" tall and 48" wide, and is made of beautiful solid oak. The only wear/damage that I could see was a split in the wood keyboard cover trim (which can be easily repaired) and a few chips on the tips of the keys. I am estimating this organ to date back to the early 1900's to about 1920's at the latest. The top is a seperate piece from the main body of the organ. The finish appears to be totally original, and untouched. The detailed carvings and craftsmanship of this piece is awesome! The beveled mirror also seems to be original to the piece. The pictures that I have provided should answer any questions you may have, but additional pictures are available, upon request. You will not be disappointed with the beauty and quality of this piece and it will look wonderful in your home!
This organ is being sold with a low starting price and "No Reserve", so bid often and bid to win this beauty! This is also being sold "as is, w is" with no warranties or returns. I describe all my items to the best of my ability, but as previously mentioned, I am not an expert on old musical instruments, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
This organ is for local pick up ONLY! I will not crate and ship this item, due to it's very fragile nature, so please, if you bid on and win this item, make arrangements to pick it up and my home in La Porte, Indiana, located in northwest Indiana, near Chicago (zip code 46350). Payment for this item will be in the form of cash or money order, upon time of pick up. The winning bidder must contact me within 48 hours with his/hers intentions and plans for pick up of this item.
