Tears on both ends (see photos). There are foot pedals but there are no piping (don't know the proper term) that goes up to the below so the melodeon is in inoperable condition presently. The right stand doesn't attach to the pedal piece.
The metal slot that is supposed to be attached to the pedal is missing. The left side has it though. The lid opens up but one of the hinges is missing (see photos).
The carved wood stands are in good condition for the age, some cracking is present but sturdy. This is an estate found piece so there is some dust present and wear and tear that's consistent with age. Please look over the photos carefully. The item "Antique 1860s O.
