Pedal organ, manufactured by the Bell Organ & Piano Company. Body is wooden (with extensive borer), with floral / geometric carvings - six on the front (three on panels above the keyboard and three on panels below the keyboard) and two on each side. There are two wooden hinged brackets below the keyboard. Bell stated in their advertising of 1895 that they had produced 75,000 instruments so the serial number "79610" would put the date of this organ c. 1900.
