We have a couple of nice toy pianos this week. First is this cute little Musikland one.
Update: Sold for £10.50
Next up is this very attractive Stradivarius by Brazilian company Hering. Hering make some excellent and interesting harmonicas and it’s a surprise to find that they make toy pianos too.
Update: sold for £63 (wow, that is a lot !)
If a toy piano isn’t big enough for your ego then how about a 4 octave ‘ships’ piano such as this one.
Update: sold for £255
Or perhaps what you really want is a grand piano, but unfortunately you don’t have the space. Then this unusual upright grand is what you need.
Update: at £302 bid this did not reach its reserve price - unsold
And so on to some squeezeboxes.
There’s something about this tiny 8 bass Vissimio piano accordion that I just love - it just seems a far better looking accordion than most 8 basses.
Update: Sold for £22
Extremely unusual is this accordion with a Kratsov keyboard. The Kratsov keyboard is intended to be an improvement on a piano keyboard in that the notes of an octave are closer together. Looks a bit tricky to play if you ask me though.
Update: Sold for £1,550 (wow!)
Here is another good example of a flutina. This one appears to have what must be its original case too, which I’m sure will add to the value. By the way the owner has incorrectly described it as a Handaeoline. Sadly it isn’t a Handaeoline - that would be a real find.
Update: sold for £312 (this is the most expensive flutina I've ever featured !)
Update 2: the original buyer didn't pay up. The flutina was re-sold for £226.10
This combo organ seems to be rare, early and English - it’s a Thundabird made by Bird. It comes with a pedal board and an amplifier.
Update: Sold for £50
And finally this is a portable Hammond organ, a real analog one not digital. It’s a Hammond B-250 and not a modified B3 or C3 that wasn’t portable to begin with. The auction claims that only 400 of these were ever made. If that’s true then this should do well. It certainly seems to fold up into a small size.
Update: Sold for £726 (seems very reasonable for what it is)
