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!!!!!
