    Is my Estey pump organ a small church organ? Any idea which model ?

    I ask because the back of the organ is beautifuly finished and ornate with many speakers. Making me think it was meant to be played facing out. Serial nummber 233,294Pump Organ Stone Slab Coffee table 030.jpg

    It's a "Philharmonic Chapel Organ" Style 1900; ca. 1895.

    Thanks SubBase!

    Any idea on value. Seems to be fully functional and totally original.

    I am going to need to sell it to make room.

    You need to sell that?!!! Many list their pump organs on *Bay for several hundred dollars, but this is the first organ I would even consider paying over $100 or $200 for (assuming everything worked). Your serial number dates it ca. 1891.

    Unfortunately, my wife would kill me if I brought home another. She's looking forward to getting the others out of the house when I get the workshop/storage in my garage.

    Nice instrument. Best on your potential sale (but I'd keep it!).

    • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)

    I would buy that. And I don't have a wife to kill me.

    I would buy that too - any day but living halfway across the world does not help towards buying it. I do have a wife who would gladly allow me to have another one....

    That is gorgeous. I'm jealous of your organ.
