Philipps Pianella Model Silvana-Xylophon

Circa 1908 catalogue illustration of a Wurlitzer style 33 Mandolin PianOrchestra.

Catalogue illustration circa 1908. Note the Philipps "Fancy Lamp," which Wurlitzer called a "Wonderlight," located just above the center niche. In addition to the already installed "Fancy Lamp," Wurlitzer added numerous small electric light bulbs to the casework once the instrument reached the North Tonawanda, New York, factory. Electric lighting and motors was added to PianOrchestras by Wurlitzer, so that the electrical systems would operate under U.S. standards.
