Lot: 1039 - MORTIER 80 KEY CAFE DANCE ORGAN.

1912, BELGIUM: Towards the end of Mortier's production, these Art Deco organs were mechanically similar to the earlier style organs, but with the addition of an accordion, they were able to add a modern café style instrument to the collection. By that time Mortier's dominance among Belgium dance organ makers was being challenged by Gebr. Decap, who also made superb dance orchestrions in the modern style. This instrument started its life in 1912 as a large size dance organ in Belgium. In 1990 it was acquired by Henri Krijnen, who enlisted Decap Herentals to downsize the organ to fit the original Mortier façade he had acquired. It was subsequently restored by Martin Conrads of Holland, where special attention was taken to give the instrument a modern sound. The addition of the accordion, some additional noted pipes and a MIDI system all have added to the wonderful sound. This Mortier will play on either tune cards or MIDI. As has been the movement for some time now with modern dance organ builders like Gebr. Decap working to a more modern sound and popular music, this instrument has achieved that sound and is worthy of a listen, so you can experience its contemporary qualities.

The first such instrument proved an instantaneous success and others quickly followed. The robot organ offered here is the largest of this type to be built by Gebroeders Decap, a 105 key instrument built in 1963.

1937, BELGIUM: From the Belgium factories of Theofiel Mortier, came some of the most elegant organs the world has ever known. Some were in the form of temples, other resembled palaces, and others with a much simpler design, but all were triumphs of the woodcarvers art. Mortier is still a name that sounds to many collectors like the Rolls Royce of dance organs, and like this example, built in Mortier's later years, a spectacle for the eyes and ears to experience. Built in 1937, this 102 key dance organ was built in the Mortier Belgium factory, and eventually purchased and moved to a museum in the UK for many years.

Lot: 1050 - MASSIVE COMPTON 9 RANK CINEMA/THEATER ORGAN.

1934, UK: In the early 20th century custom design pipe organs were used to accompany silent movies, and later as feature entertainment during the era of "talkies". The Rudolph Wurlitzer company is legendary in this respect, but in the UK, The John Compton Organ Company supplied many of the fine instruments to cinemas throughout the British Isles. This particular organ, one of the finest of its size, was supplied in 1934 to the Astoria Cinema in Kingston, Hull, a brand new state of the art cinema at that time. Seating over 1500 people, the organ had to be powerful enough to fill the large auditorium with sound. It performed for many years until it fell into disrepair in the 1970's. In the early 80's, the Compton was removed from the Astoria and reinstalled in a theme park. When this venture failed in 1989, the York Museum of Mechanical Music was able to purchase it.

Lot: 1052 - A. KOENIGSBERG 70 KEY STREET ORGAN, THE DE HARMONIUM.

1913, HOLLAND: A. Koenigsberg built dance organs and street organs in the same factory where his orchestrions were fabricated. Very much a part of the Belgian/Holland organ makers community at the time, Koenigsberg purchased this organ pre-WWI, when not a lot was known about its provenance. Called the "Harmonium" as the original organ had a harmonium mounted out front, but in order for the organ to be shortened and made more portable, Koeingsberg removed the harmonium, and added the lower façade. In about 1947, it was sold to G. Perlee of Amsterdam, no longer in playing order. Mr. Perlee stored the organ in his workshop for more than 30 years, then, in the late 1970's, he decided to make it playable once again, after which it was bought by Brian Blockley, an organ enthusiast in the United Kingdom. Though the organ itself had been worked on, the façade had not received any attention at all, so once in the UK it was extensively repaired and re-decorated. The replacement upper carved panels were set aside and new ones, based on the originals, were made using old photographs as reference. From the early 1980's onward the organ could be regularly admired, playing at many shows and events in the north of England. The organ was eventually purchased into this collection and in 2011, before it returned to the Netherlands, a major overhaul including re-leathering the bellows and wind chests was completed and the façade was also completely re-decorated and gilded.

1920, BELGIUM: Koenigsberg, better known for their Dance and street organ manufacturer, did a lot of conversion work on player pianos to produce full size orchestrions, especially for the Belgium cafes and small dance halls. With this example, using a Weber Brabo as a base, Koenigsberg added an accordion, xylophone, large and small drums, wood block and triangle. This instrument has the tag for A. Geyxen, Brusselles, but it clearly plays as a German instrument from Weber.

1920, USA: An incredible Wurlitzer orchestrion, equipped with a bank of 38 flute pipes, a bank of 38 violin pipes, piano, mandolin, triangle, percussion with base and snare drums. In total, there are 72 pipes, and unlike many band organs of its time, this orchestrion can play a multitude of tunes, switching music rolls through the automatic rolls changer. It is housed in a fine quartered oak cabinet with elegant carved details, beautiful original stained glass windows and a revolving "Wonderlight" displaying a colorful light show as the music plays. Manufactured by Wurlitzer between 1913 and 1924. CONSIDERATIONS: Cosmetically, this Wurlitzer CX has a wonderful deep rich finish, all original stained glass, and like many of the Wurlitzer BX and CX orchestrions, a case model we have not seen before. Mechanically, this instrument was running off a MIDI system and has been converted back to rolls, though the MIDI componentry still exits inside the cabinet and presumably - with a few upgrades - could play again via electronic control. A very desirable orchestrion by collectors and a fine example for any collection. Includes 143 music rolls. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. Condition: (Very Good). Dimensions: 60" x 28 - 1/4" x 94".

Lot: 1074 - SEEBURG MODEL E UPRIGHT WITH FLUTE PIPES.

1915, USA: In this era of player pianos and orchestrions, Seeburg appeared to be introducing a new model every couple of months, and it is easy to assume that on some of the upright pianos of similar design, parts were used as available. As such, here is a Seeburg model "E" upright player piano with mandolin attachment and flute pipes. This orchestrion has been a bit of a mystery as the art glass configuration is that of most model "B's" we have seen, but with the flute pipes, it is believed to be a model "E". Quartered oak case, with original art glass and lamps. A wonderful example of Seeburg's offerings at that time. CONSIDERATIONS: Showing an earlier restoration, the cosmetics of this instrument are great, with a light finish to the oak.

Lot: 1082 - NATIONAL AUTOMATIC MUSIC COMPANY PLAYER PIANO WITH AUTOMATIC CHANGER.

In the year 1909, with a few hundred dollars, the organization that later was to grow into the Automatic Musical Instrument Company was formed. The assets of the company consisted of 1 automatic electric piano and 2 applications for U.S. patents (then not yet allowed) for a selecting device, by which any desired music roll contained in a magazine could be played. Unlike other mechanical piano companies of the time that sold their machines to business and shop proprietors, The National Automatic Music Co. did not sell their machines, but placed them on location within a revenue sharing contract, and took on the responsibility of servicing and changing music rolls weekly upon the company. A daunting undertaking, when you consider that by 1925 they had 4,000 pianos on location. By 1931, the company took on the task of disposing of all the then useless coin pianos that were being replaced with the company's new automatic phonograph. Most pianos were then in storage and the company sold the pianos to the storage facility for back fees, and the pianos were then salvaged for their motors and burned to extract all metal parts. It is amazing that this example survived. Beautiful restored quartered oak, complete mechanical restoration, and featuring an "Automatic Whippet Race", which was retrofitted on some refurbished pianos late in production to offer another entertainment feature. CONSIDERATIONS: With signature 8 slot coin entry plate, working automatic roll mechanism, and fully operational Whippet race feature, this example would be a standout in any mechanical music collection. Includes 18 music rolls. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. Condition: (Excellent). Dimensions: 59 - 1/2" x 29 - 1/4" x 55".

Lot: 1083 - SPECIAL PAUL LOSCHE ORCHESTRIAN FLUE AND VIOLIN SOLO PIANO WITH SAXOPHONE PIPES.

1920, GERMANY: During the early 20th century, the firm of Paul Losche, known as the Leipzig Orchestrion Works, produced a wide variety of pianos and orchestrations, distributed mainly in Germany, Belgium, and England. Because Losche produced pianos and orchestrions under private label, the brand is not widely known by collectors and is thus scarcer in availability. This example, known as the violin and solo piano orchestration, was their most widely distributed model and sold primarily from the 1910's to mid 1920's. A seldom-seen version with violin, flute, and saxophone pipes accompanied with piano and mandolin, this instrument has a deep rich sound, but not over powering like American orchestrions of the same period. Many mechanical instrument collectors of today believe the German and European built orchestrions have a superb sound, and this Losche lives up to that standard. CONSIDERATIONS: Showing minimal wear to walnut case, original applied carvings, added sconces, and playing well with a recent tuning. This wonderful instrument would make an excellent addition to any mechanical music collection. Includes 28 music rolls. This is not a standard shippable item and will require 3rd party shipping or pickup arrangements to be made. Condition: (Excellent). Dimensions: 62" x 34 - 1/4" x 94".

They were also very well known for private labeling instruments for other manufacturers, and as such their products are not as well known to collectors. This example of a Losche orchestrion is their Jazz Band Piano, made in 1928. Bearing a striking resemblance to the Popper "Happy-Jazzband" orchestrion, this instrument has piano with mandolin in the bottom cabinet, and drums, cymbals and percussion in the top cabinet. Walnut cabinet with original Losche decal, applied carvings to top and bottom cabinet, and painted bass drum head with 3 jazz musicians. CONSIDERATIONS: The cabinet is showing an earlier refinishing with a deep rich finish that has aged well.

The instrument plays well, was restored earlier mechanically and continues to play well. A different sound from a jazz orchestrion when you use the right roll. Includes 24 music rolls.

Inside this grand piano is a Tri Phonolona pneumatic system Hupfeld called the Tri Phonola. The Tri Phonola was the competitor to the Welte Mignon system, and was believed to have been the German translation of The Aeolain Companies Pianola. This example of Hupfelds Tri Phonola is a rare instrument. Built in 1926, serial number 42229, utilizing a piano built by the Feurich factory in Leipzig, Hupfeld then installed it into the cabinet and added the Tri Phonola and the instrument was sold to the original buyer, believed to have been a famous operetta singer and pianist from Leipzig, Germany.

Lot: 1091 - WURLITZER AUTOMATIC HARP STYLE " A".

1908, USA: Among the earliest automatic musical instruments was the unlikely self-playing harp. Like the Violano, it was perfected by an independent inventor, J.W. "Row'' Whitlock. Whitlock spent 6 years developing the automatic harp and the patent, issued on September 8, 1900, read as follows: "This invention relates to musical instruments which are automatic in their action, starting upon the introduction of a coin...and stopping automatically when the piece is finished.". In 1905 Wurlitzer established an agreement with Whitlock to sell the harps on an exclusive basis. The two firms signed a contract for 1000 harps, to be delivered in 3 years, at a rate of 35 per month. The last harp was produced in late 1910 or 1911. The harp contains sixty fingers (almost human in their operation) and produces a volume of soft, sweet music equal to several Italian harps played by hand. The face of the instrument is covered by large harp-shaped plate glass, showing the interior lit up by electric lights and the wonderful little fingers picking the strings. This feature gives the instrument an exceedingly attractive appearance. Approximately 1100 style harps were made, of which 4 are known to exist today. The change of case design to a Style B took place in 1906. About 400 Style B harps were made of which 7 are known to survive. CONSIDERATIONS: The oak case shows an earlier restoration, with the internal cabinet original with the original Wurlitzer decal. Celluloid tag with patents is intact, and the harp is complete.

1979, USA: Walt Disney patented the terminology "audio-animatronic" in 1967, where prerecorded audio was synchronized with the movement of robotics to produce a very life-like effect in his attractions at Disneyland. By 1970, southern California had become the hub of robotic engineers and several companies adopted and licensed Disney 's patents to produce very entertaining exhibits and displays for Hotels, Casinos, Fairs and theme parks. In that same year, a hotel opened in Paradise, NV, called the Royal Americana Hotel, which ultimately became the Paddlewheel Hotel and Casino, before being purchased by Debbie Reynolds in 1990. In 1979, The Paddle Wheel casino tapped into the audio-animatronics craze in California and commissioned an entertainment attraction, called "Jo Jo Ivory and the Paddle Wheelers" to be built and placed in their theater to entertain guests. The attraction was modeled after famous jazz musicians of the 1950's and 60's, and includes a piano player and vocalist, (Jo JO) a trumpet, clarinet, base and sax musicians, with a banjo playing vocalist. Henri Krijnen purchased the attraction in 1995 from the then Debbie Reynolds hotel and had it restored from 2003 to 2009 by Hoffman Figurines out of Bad Rodach Germany. To say this is an amazing example of 1970 Audio-Animatronic engineering would be a gross understatement. The action includes, eyes, hands, mouths, cheeks blowing air, and near perfect synchronization of singing to lip movements, and motion to musical instruments.
