Item Type: Wheatstone ‘Wren’ Mouth Organ
Full Description: An original “Tutor Leaflet” for the
“Wheatstone Wren Mouth Organ”, one of the first instruments
permitted to be made by Wheatstone’s as the restrictions on
non-war-related manufactures began to be relaxed after the war. This
is the only known surviving “Wren” Tutor, and was one
of 100,000 printed in March 1946; the leaflet cites as Sole
Distributors “Boosey & Hawkes” – who were
later to take over - and eventually close - the Wheatstone Company.
