Cremona Orchestrions
made by
Marquette Piano Company, Chicago, Illinois
by Don Teach

The date of this Cremona catalog isn't known.  J. P. Seeburg got his start at Cremona (Marquette Piano Company), and later officers of  the Cremona piano worked for Seeburg in the late 'teens and 'twenties.  Western Electric Pianos have some similar parts as Cremona.  The Cremona Style G played 10-tune "A" rolls.  The Cremona Style J and K played special 88-note rolls.  The Style D played ordinary 88-note piano rolls.
