These were made in the late 1940s and through the 1950s. Earlier models were an attachment for a piano; one would insert a row of organ switched beneath 60 of the piano keys. Later models featured the Lowrey Organo built into pianos made by Story & Clark and by Janssen.

If you open the lower panel, the Jensen P10Q speaker/speakers will have a date code on them, for example: 5613, which would indicate, 1956 13th week as the mfg. date of the speaker. You can assume that the piano was built sometime shortly afterwards.  BTW the Jensen P10Q could be worth $250 or more each.
