Compass: 58 notes, by maple transposing Tracker-Bar. Action: Pneumatic. Stops: Roll-drive control by single knob: Rewind; Off; Slow; Medium; Fast. Two buttons pneumatically operating the two pedals on the piano. This instrument was an early form of piano player. It was 'pushed up' against the keys of a piano and, when pedalled, activated them and played it. The rectangular case, on metal castors, is veneered all over with rosewood. The case front is decorated on both sides with a carved, stylised flower head and a long palmette, above three grooved lines. Two long, narrow doors in the lower section of the case conceal the pedals, with rubber-covered treads.
