    According to the Antique Piano Company website, the firm manufactured coin-operated pianos and orchestrions (automated combination piano and organ, usually with untuned percussion stops as well). The 'pipe organ' factory presumably made the pipes, chests, and winding for the orchestrions.

    The company did not make conventional pianos, only automated instruments, so it is unlikely the firm made conventional organs. They were in business from c. 1907 until 1920.

Some of our entries are names that might never appear on a nameplate or nameboard.
On the other hand, there are both individuals and firms who are responsible for conserving historic organs through location, or preserving the usefulness of pipe organs through rebuilding or making modifications to existing instruments. In these cases, we are proud to acknowledge their contributions to the ongoing artistic tradition of the pipe organ in America through individual entries in our online database.
