priceless antique

If it's really Regency, the price is derisory and someone will be getting a bargain. It looks like a nice piece - or even a barrel organ with the insides taken out. Again if it's genuine, maybe the pipes were taken out during restoration work and put in upside down.

Or perhaps they're a gemshorn or spitzflute with very long feet. :P

Ouch!

 

Is not the door itself simply upside down?

Or maybe the pipes are a moulded panel which was inverted when re-attached to the door during repairs...

Very odd, though. Needs a big room. Would hold lots of music.

If you scroll down the ebay listing, somebody's put in what looks like a full explanation (including that the front panel was inverted at some point - albeit the seller doesn't sound very convinced!)
