Art Harmonium

Tres Unique Art Harmonium build by Victor Mustel and delivered to Mason & Hamlin Boston USA.

As far as we know now there has been 5 of these instruments delivered  to Mason & Hamlin in the 60-ies.

The cabinet is made by M&H.

One is destroyed, one is lost, one in San Francisco USA,  one in UK, one in the Netherlands.

Because of all the internal modifications like stopaction, round reedcell holes and pallet holes

it has been manufactured befor 1865.

The sound is overwhelming strong with character!

It has the complete stoplist  from nr 1 till 7, Percussion, Forté Fix and Forte Expression,  Double Expression

We do have Mustel #9 in our workshop. The windchest from #9 and the Mustel on the photo

do have the same round holes which after 1864 became rectangular holes!! An important issue to date this instrument!!
