Vintage portable celeste/celesta.
By JENCO. 3 octave.
Wood cabinet with oil cloth wrap. Aluminum, brass and chromed metal hardware and trim.
Circa mid 20th century. USA.
A few holes have been made in the case at some point -- one on the right side, several in a group on front (adjacent the
exterior Jenco logo), and a large hole covered by a metal wall plate (also on front). There are no other holes in or modifications
to the cabinet.
A couple of the rubber feet on bottom were replaced along the way.
Small hairline crack to one white key -- see photos. Otherwise all keys are in excellent, clean condition with no other
Otherwise this celeste is in very good, all original cosmetic condition. No other modifications. No damages. Other than the
2 rubber feet no apparent replaced or non original parts. No apparent restorations.
No chips, cracks, breaks, dents, etc. to the cabinet.
All hinges and latches are sound and functional.
Use-related wear, including scattered, light scuffs, rubs and scratches to the oil cloth wrap. Use-related scratches and
oxidation to the metal trim and hardware. Nothing terribly conspicuous.
The grille cloth is in very good condition.
FUNCTION / MECHANISM:
Generally plays well and sounds great to my ear but presumably requiring minor tuning and adjustment for optimum
playability and sound quality.
The cabinet contents were in no way affected by the holes in the cabinet.
The cabinet interior and contents is generally clean and exhibits only light use-related wear / age-related oxidation. See
No apparent missing, replaced or non original parts. No evidence of restoration or repair to the cabinet contents.
Restoration of the cabinet (including filling the holes, rewrapping the cabinet and polishing the hardware) will significantly
enhance the appearance of this celeste (and presumably its resale value as well).
Such cosmetic restorations will obviously not affect sound quality or playability of this celeste. I believe only minor
tuning/adjustment will be required to optimize sound/playability.
