Features 61 Keys and 10 labels for the pegs you pull out to turn on and affect the sounds of ranges of keys, Square Beveled Glass Mirror and Candle Holders on each side. Not in working condition, needs serviced. Scratch in finish as can be seen in photographs.

A Pump Organ in this exact style and made at the same time did sell on a past auction for $300.00.

The D.W. Karn Co. was established in 1867 when Dennis W. Karn joined John M. Miller and were first known as Miller & Karn. They also were known as the Woodstock Organ Factory. In 1870 Karn bought out Miller but kept the Miller & Karn name for several years. He later changed it to the D.W. Karn Co. and exhibited the new name in 1888. In 1896 they acquired S.R. Warren & Son organ factory and by 1909 became the Karn Morris Piano & Organ Co. In 1924 Sherlock Manning purchased The Karn-Morris Piano & Organ Company and continued to produce pianos under the “Karn” name until 1961.
