Gasparini Handle Reproductions
by Philip Jamison (MMDigest 990501)

I'm considering getting some handles cast for a barrel piano under repair.  These are a sturdy, 4-screw solid handle, the screw holes being approximately 4-3/8" apart.  I'm going to copy, I think, a fairly ornate handle from a Gasparini barrel organ.  A photo is below.  The foundry estimates $8-$12 each for silicone bronze (a good price, I think).  The originals were usually iron, but these could be painted or polished.  Anyway, if anyone else has a need, I could get additional copies made.  E-mail me if you're interested.
