Organ cabinet


RCIN 1366

The large and unusual shape of this mahogany cabinet befits its purpose – to house an upright harpsichord and organ (claviorgan). It is thought to have been made for George II or (perhaps more likely) for Frederick, Prince of Wales. The Prince and Princess of Wales had a number of organs at Leicester House and Carlton House, including at least two 'machine' or mechanical organs.
