Restoration cabinet organ Maastricht (2013)

As far as known now, the instrument was made in the second half of the 18th century, probably just before 1790 (keyboard size C – f´´´). The Peuvenement donated it in 1982. It is almost certainly made by organ maker Johannes Pieter Künckel (1750-1815) and was located at Rotterdam. Since his wife came from Gouda, it could be possible that Künckel worked with organ maker H. H. Hess before he settled in Rotterdam. Based on research of the pipes (inscriptions), the furniture and the way the instrument was built into the furniture, points out that this organ can be attributed to Künckel. Even after research it is not entirely sure if the disposition always was as large as it is now.
