Every now and than a harmonium has to be moved. Most of the time when mrs. Bucket (pronouced Bouquet) the lady of the house feels to clean the parlour where she keeps her "Royal Doulton with the Periwinkles".

It is nice to imagine the parlor of the Bucket residence like this:

Yes, it is. The Famous Mason & Hamlin Style 1400 pressure harmonium.

To move the harmonium during the annual Springcleaning, builders of harmoniums featured the instruments with handles. Sometimes just a piece of wood attached to the side, sometimes true pieces of artwork.

In our collection we only have pictures of a few types. We hope to have more in due time. Your help would be very apreciated in this search!
