Early Seeburg Style J Orchestrion
Cremona Style F piano with pipes.
This early case style of the J orchestrion with capitol building art glass was second only to the Seeburg H in size, and almost as ornate. It plays H rolls on the same instrumentation as in an H, but without the drums and cymbal. The smaller Style J in the Peerless Wisteria case (also shown in this gallery) was introduced a few years later.
