The melodeon is the forerunner of the pump organ and was built from about the mid 1840's to the early 1870's.  Many of the larger ones looked like small square pianos; and some were actually advertised to be in a piano style case.  These are wind rolex replica uk instruments with brass reeds to make the sound.  One characteristic of this type instrument is that it only has one pedal to power the bellows system.  The other pedal is a volume pedal.  These are true antiques by any standard with the newest ones being over 130 years old.
