PINKEY AT BELLM'S
Pinkey is a beautiful 65 Key Gavioli Fair Organ and was made in the early 1900's.. At one time it played from a pinned cylinder, and was used on a huge Carousel in a German Park. Later, it was brought to the United States and converted from an 89 key organ to play from 82 key Artizan rolls. It gets its name from the pink trousered bandmaster. It plays hundreds of pipe, bass drum, snare drum, cymbal, and two bells.
Pinkey has an elaborately carved facade with three articulated figures. The bandmaster is a unique left-handed conductor and the bell-ringers solemnly tap their bells when the music calls for them. At each of the lower corners may be seen a gorgeous heavily carved rose with petals extended just a real full-blown rose has. Elaborate carvings and scrollwork also adorn the machine and graceful vines encircle the newel posts.
