Cremona Style J Orchestrion
Cremona Style F piano with pipes.
This Cremona J was originally sold by W.H. Aton, a distributor in Baraboo, Wisconsin, to S.U. Teefle for his tavern in the same city. William Kugler, a pioneer collector from Minneapolis, was its second owner. Its third and current owner is the Place de la Musique Collection in Chicago.

Upper interior of the restored early Cremona J. Like the Seeburg H and Coinola X, it has solo capability for the pipes and bells. The tambourine and castanets were added, copied from those instruments in the smaller Cremona Style K.
