We need your help: Does anyone recognize the brand of this American Reed Organ?

 

 

 

  • The one in Italy looks to me like a Smith American, cf ROS number 0417. ( Dean).
  • The Ogliastro instrument looks like a Smith. (Ian).

We now wait for the votes of Alaska and Antarctica. The votes of Tasmania will count double.

By now we know it is defenitely a Smith American Organ of Boston

 

 

 

Ogliastro in Corse

(At first I wrote Ogliastro is in Italy (There is a village near Palermo) but I was told there is a village Ogliastro in Corse too).

 

Pictures of an American Organ (Pedal reed organ 2 manuals with pedals), sent to me by the French organbuilder Jean-Louis Loriaut.
