In 1766 JHH Bätz built a cabinet organ for Mr. IJ Faber van Riemsdijk (born in 1746), at that time living in Utrecht. In 1769 he moved to Haarlem, where he became mayor in 1788. In 1813 his son Jeremias Cornelis Faber van Riemsdijk (1786 - 1863) became mayor of The Hague. The organ probably remained in possession of the family. Until 1910 the further fate is unknown. In that year it was located in the reformed Westerkerk in Harlingen. In the year 1932 it was brought to the current location by rail: the Reformed Church of De Pollen, near Vriezenveen. It has slowly but surely decayed here. There is a picture that was made in Harlingen. There are two figurines on the corner points, and King David has a harp. These have now disappeared.
Meanwhile, the organ has been restored and the statuettes have been replaced.
