    Organ is in rectangular wooden case on a pedestal with corner feet decorated with brass plates. Black polished facade, decorated with carving and golden paint, is closed with a removable frame with two narrow windows on the sides and two in the middle. Three windows are covered with red colour cloth. White wooden piccolo pipes with black plugs against red background are in the top window. Relief image of golden colour lyre twisted by leaves, against the background of crossed trumpets and flags is in the center of the bottom window. Volumised carved wooden finial with the images of foliage elements, mascaron in the center and the heads of fantastic animals along the edges crowns the upper part of the façade. Manufacturer’s name is on the bottom crossbar: "A. Ruth & Sohn in Waldkirch Baden". The sides of the case and pedestal are veneered with walnut and decorated with triple narrow frame made of various wood species. Two cast handles for carrying are on the lateral sides. Barrel knife and bolt mechanism is on the left side. Located above crank in the form of an anchor raises and lowers the keyframe in the working position. Five metal handles of the sliders and removable pinned barrel lid are on the right side. The rear side is stepped, with a lid over the bottom step. A paper sticker with a brand name, the name of the barrel manufacturer and a list of melodies is on the lid inner side. Pinned barrel with nine tunes and key frame with fifty-nine keys, according to the number of basic tones are under the lid. With the key frame raised, the barrel can be moved along the axis and set to one of nine fixed positions according to the selected melody. When the flywheel rotates with a wooden handle mounted on the organ rear side, the worm gear rotates the shaft, and the crank gear activates the bellows blowing air into the wind chest, that is distributing the compressed air between the pipes. The barrel pins and bridges raise the keys that open the valves of the respective pipes. The repertoire of the organ is comprised of classical, folk and popular music.
