Wolfgang Brommer was asking for reports of sightings of organs by Ignaz
B. Bruder, the founder of the Bruder dynasty. It occurred to me that,
while I can recognize an organ by Wilhelm Bruder, I have no idea what
one by Ignaz might look like.
I did not easily find a picture on the Jaeger & Brommer web site, so
I went to Herbert Juettemann's book, 'Waldkircher Dreh- und Jahr-
markt-Orgeln', where there are several pictures, color and monochrome,
of what turn out to be very distinctive and charming little cabinet
barrel organs, crammed with figures in a top center inset.
If these are what we should be looking for, it might be helpful if
Wolfgang could post a picture, as I am sure one would instantly
recognize an Ignaz B. B. product if he should see one. Sorry to
report that I haven't.
[ Good idea ! Wolfgang, if you will send JPEG photo images to us,
[ we will place them at the MMD web site, with your text, on a new
[ web page for "Ignaz Blasius Bruder Organs"! -- Robbie
