Salicional Celeste English?

This stop is described only by Bonavia-Hunt, who says:

The dulciana and salicional céleste has a modicum of string tone in its composition, and in some respects is the most beautiful type [of celeste] of all. For normal use, it is certainly the best; and where it is not possible to introduce more than one form of céleste into an organ, perhaps this one should be given the preference. There is an excellent example in the swell division of the organ in the Christian Science Church, Curzon Street, W., which is composed of a pair of slotted salicionals.

Example

Osiris lists eight examples, all at 8' pitch
