Quintadena Celeste English?
Quintaphon (unknown)
Quintaphone (unknown)

Quintaphon is listed only by Skinner, who says: “Two small Quintadenas tuned as a Celeste. Developed by the writer.” Skinner reportedly made only three. We assume Quintaphone to be a synonym. The name Quintadena Celeste is listed only by Strony, who reports that it was included only in a few larger theatre organs. Hope-Jones used a similar stop under the name Celestina, a Phoneuma celeste.
