Interesting, almost chaotic placement of pipes for the organ at the Market Church in Goslar. Built 2012. Very pretty! By Freiburger Orgelbau, Germany.

Vleugels Orgelbau; Lampertheim, Germany 2005; III/44. Weird looking thing...

Pipe Organ - Thomas Appleton (1785–1872) Date: 1830, Boston, Massachusetts, Wood, various materials, Dimensions: H. 490.2 cm (16 ft. 1 in.)

Clavicytheria, or upright harpsichords, were made as early as the 15th century, but tall examples such as this date from the late Baroque era. Having 2 sets of doors that conceal the strings, the case appears ungainly when open, but when closed it has a graceful outline embellished by gilded "wings" and stops control 2 sets of strings. The mechanism has been altered and the painted soundboard is a replacement; originally the instrument may have been an upright piano.
