I have just finished the restauration of a 1904 Mignon organette,
style II (double reeds), with a "piano" model case. It was in a
terrible condition when I got it, so in the restoring of the chest
all the transparents were lost except the one on the front, but that
one is not in a good condition either. I would like the organette
not only musically good, but a beauty on the outside as well.
Does anyone know if these transparents are still being made, or
anybody who has a set of them?
