Piano Sink

This 1885 upright piano has been converted to a bathroom sink.

The pedals operate the water flow. The left pedal is hot, the right is cold. The middle is both hot and cold.

The canister on the top left is a 1910 vintage hot water heater.

Victrola sink

This Victor Victrola, made on January 24, 1927, makes a very good base to use as a bathroom sink. The bowl was originally a ceiling lamp fixture from the 1920's.

The second photo is from a magazine ad from the same period showing the phonograph as it appeared new.

Pump Organ Cabinet

  The pump organ is a type of reed organ that generates sound with foot-pumped bellows. Smaller cheaper and more portable than pipe organs, reed organs were widely used in smaller churches and in private homes in the 19th and 20th century, but their volume and tonal range were limited, and they generally had one or sometimes two manuals, with pedal-boards being rare. The finer instruments have a unique tone, and the cabinets of those intended for churches and finer homes were often excellent pieces of furniture. Several million reed organs and melodeons were made in the U.S. between the 1850's and the 1920's.

  This pump organ was made by the Chicago Cottage Organ Co. during the 1880's.

Its life as a musical instrument has long since past, but, its life as fine furniture continues to provide fine cabinetry to the present day.
