The harmonium is labeled on the inside of the lid, which has a folding music rack: METZLER & Co. LTD / 42 GREAT MARLBOROUGH ST. LONDON". The outer case is oak and designed to resemble a large bible when closed. The keyboard encompasses 3 1/2 octaves with keys of celluloid and the sharps of ebonized wood. The bellows are painted royal blue with red edges.
Bible-shaped organs such as this one were probably the last ones produced and are quite scarce.INS-12691$2,250
