I have one EXACTLY the same. I got it for Christmas when I was about 8yrs old in the 70's. It was bought from Waltons Gosford NSW. I know because my Mother worked there and i used to look at it all the time. I doubt very much that these organs were built in the 1910's 1920's as suggested!!

I have a child' organ by Estey. Mine is from early 1940's. A magazine from that time showed it in a child's room. When I researched it, it is going from $300. to $500. You can always come down in price, but you can't go up. Good luck.

Expertise

PIPE ORGAN QUESTIONS ONLY. Please NO questions about pianos, piano age, piano value. Those should be directed to specialists in that area found elsewhere on this website. I can assist you with questions regarding PIPE ORGAN age, how to find a competent service technician, names of local builders and their various specialties, possibilites for selling or purchasing PIPE ORGANS. I can often help an organist with emergency/temporary repairs. My experience with pump organs, also known as reed organs or harmoniums, is limited but will happily share what I can on that subject. Piano questions should be directed to others. Question regarding your piano should be directed to others. Others can help you with your piano questions. I don't do pianos. No Piano Questions here.

Experience

I have 10 years full-time experience and another 15 years part-time experience in the pipe organ building/repair industry. My experience includes tuning, regulation, repairs, moving, storage, expansion and total restoration of all four pricipal pipe-organ action types: tracker, tubular pneumatic, electro-pneumatic and electro-mechanical, including (but not limited to) those built by Skinner, Kimball, Pilcher, Moller, Kilgen, Holtkamp, Schantz, Wicks, Austin, Wurlitzer, Morton, Barton, Hook, Erben, Stevens, Johnson, Jardine and Estey. I have been employed by various churches as organist or organist-choir director since 1980. I have designed new spaces for the installation of pipe organs and consulted on acoustic qualities in sacred spaces.
