Anyone heard of "Performa-Chord" an antique electric Organ?

I acquired a mini-electric organ from my grandmothers home recently and cannot seem to find any info. anywhere on this - history, value, fixing, etc. Its tag says says "Established in Italy 1906 Made by Serenelli" and has the name Performa-Chord across the front box. Anyone with any info. on this please help.

Francesco Serenelli from Castelfidardo, Italy (active 1903 - 1963) is the closest reference to your date I can find. Accordion manufacturer, probably added chord organs to their lineup in the 40s or 50s.

... I wouldn't hold out much hope for making a big profit on it.

No relation to the current Serenelli accordion manufacturer ... http://www.serenellini.com/
