DESCRIPTION: After a neighbor to our hunting property died suddenly, we have purchased her home & her family left her piano in the house. The piano came from a dance hall above the Lake Street Liquor Store in Minneapolis MN in 1980 after it closed due to a redevelopment project. She did not play piano, but could not bear to have it destroyed, so took it home & kept it until her death last year. I believe it would be a dishonor to her memory to just chuck it (although my husband would love to volunteer it for a bonfire), so hoping to find someone to save it. There is obvious wear since was in a public establishment - worn finish/edges, missing a pedal, and a section of what appears to be veneer key ivories have fallen off (but all are saved in an envelope). I did not try all the keys, but all the keys I tried have worked & overall there is quite decent sound - I was expecting some noticeable dissonance (I grew up singing choir in school).

I opened the top and there is like a gold plate inside under the strings - the left has "New Scale" with "4" in the lower corner, there is a carved oval with 40128 where I believe the serial# should be, & P.A. Starck Piano Co. on it. The cabinet says it is a cabinet grand with a twenty-five year warranty. It has a rich dark brown finish which the appraiser said is satin mahogany.

I'm listing this for the nominal appraisal value I received. I'm hoping someone has a restoration interest since it's over a century old, or maybe a school could use it, or a young student needs this instrument for practice.

The piano is on our property in Boyceville WI. I'm also listing it in the Eau Claire area. If someone in the metro has an interest then we will bring it back to our Inver Grove Heights home & can be flexible about arranging pickup. Would deliver for gas fee.

PLEASE CALL/TEXT ONLY SINCE I DON'T USE THIS CL EMAIL MUCH.

WILL PULL AD WHEN GONE
