Orchestrions aren't exactly commonplace. That's partly what makes this Marquette Cremona, complete with stained glass so special. What is basically a piano/organ hybrid, the orchestrion has three sets of pipes that can recreate flute, piccolo, violin, piano, mandolin and percussion effects. A keyboard before we had keyboards! I also like the little lanterns in the alcoves, either side of the keys! Estimated value when it heads to auction is $20-30,000 and to be honest, I'm not surprised, this thing looks lovely.
