Church Organ Architectural Model

CUNNINGHAM WHITE'S
A charming scratch-built antique scale or architectural model of a large church or cathedral organ. Constructed in mixed timbers, it was originally used as a donation box - there is a coin slot in the top and internally there is the later addition of an electrical mechanism that, when an old copper penny was dropped in, would light up a bulb above the keyboard booth. Though not working now, it would be possible to reinstate this using modern wiring.

The whole piece is in completely original and untouched condition - even the little velvet curtains are still intact. With intricately carved panels and a range of individually carved and painted organ pipes. I love the detail in the keyboard, little peddles and stops.

Surely a unique and one-off piece. English, 19th century.

At Cunningham White's we source decorative antiques and furniture. We are guided by great decorative value, recognising the emotion that can be gained from owning something that just looks and feels so good. We don't pin ourselves down to one particular style or period. We simply love good looking things.

Sam finds and Naomi fixes (although sometimes it's the other way round) and as a team we manage to always have a quality selection of stock in our collection.

We believe that antiques are the future. Timeless, quality pieces add so much character to any scheme and can make a house into a home. They are sustainable. They haven't been thrown away because they are made to last and they can be fixed. We do that bit for you (if it's needed). Antiques reflect our individuality and connect us to past generations. We will always try and find out the provenance of a piece and share that with our customers.

We gladly welcome visitors but please let us know when you plan to visit as we're often out. Our workshop is based in the grounds of a working rescue farm in the characterful, vibrant and independently minded community of Totnes in beautiful South Devon.
