Debain Harmonina

This instrument is a rare one from Debain. The Harmonina! patented 1862.

Made especially for the Boudoir of the ladies.

Ofcours, a child could play to, but still,  unusual.

Francois Debain, #901 and # 7109, build between 1862 – 65,

1 2/5 sets of reeds, pressure system, rosewood cabinet,

can be played by handpumping and a tripod pedalpump.

Sometimes you will see 2 or 3 Harmonina’s.

To show you the differences between wrong repairwork and a complete original one unrestored.

This one, #901 was also completely wrong repaired. It was a big mess!!!!!
