Hay all,

Found this on Facebook in my local area. It looks like a regular cabinet or something, but description says it has a keyboard on the inside that doesn't work. Possibly a spinet made to look like furniture, or something else? I can kind of see a lid hinge going across the top of it. Thoughts?

There is not enough information to determine what it might be, other than it is probably overpriced by at least $10.

Can't imagine why anyone would want it. No wonder we've never seen one. Nobody liked them. Stupid design.

I suspect it's a harmonium photographed from the rear; the keyboard and treadles would be on the other side. The seller possibly can't tell the difference between a piano and an organ—that's more common than one might expect.

As evidenced by many ads I've seen on the internet - particularly Craigslist - some folks think anything with a keyboard is a piano.
