Williams Organ Company/Epworth. Manufactured in Centerville Iowa (as far as I know) 16 Reed Pump Organ with stool.
It needs to be restored. Unfortunately my mom didn't take very good care of it. After receiving it from my grandfather.
It has been in our family for 60+ years now.
"Williams Organ Co.” are printed in gold lettering on the left side of the front panel even with the stops, and the words “Centerville Iowa” are on the right side. Ivory keys.
From left to right the reed's read...
Sub Bass, Principal, Dulcet, Diapason, Box Angelica, Viola, Clarone, Diapason Foret (red), Principal Foret (red), Cup Hone, Flute, Cermona, Melodia, EchoStar Horn, Celeste and Octave Coupler (red).
All reeds are written in black except for.... Diapason Foret, Principal Foret and Octave Coupler. Those reed's are written in red (not exactly sure why).
I haven't looked into finding any other marks or item numbers yet.
I was taught to play on this Organ and it has been my favorite piece for as long as I can remember.
