    It is free-standing in a raised gallery above and behind the pulpit area, 
    with a large three-sided case of quarter-sawn oak, and speaks very well 
    into an elegant interior, giving a good account of itself despite wall-to-wall 
    carpet. The extensive facade, decorated in satin metallic tones (gold and 
    copper/bronze) with simple stenciling, was restored by Kristin G. Farmer.
