A melodeon is basically a small reed organ in the shape of a miniature square piano. These instruments were the forerunners of the Victorian parlor organ, usually having only one set of reeds. Most melodeons date from the early to mid 19th century, and are extremely rare and valuable. Their tone is light and sweet and their cabinets are usually quite beautiful. Any surviving specimens of these instruments are of museum caliber, and great care should be taken in preserving them.”
