Perhaps. They still have some functionality, although most people will use a digital keyboard instead these days. I think there was someone looking for one in this area in the past year.

I also have a Virgil Practice Clavier, which I purchased several years ago as a "curiosity". I believe it dates from the 1890's, has folding legs and is in fair condition. As I am "down-sizing", I would like to find a new, appreciative, home for this unique piece.

I have offered it to several local museums, but it does not "fit" into their collections, so I am willing to offer it FREE to anyone who will provide a new home and just pay for the shipping.

If you're interested, please contact me or leave a note and I will get back to you. Many thanks.

I'd love one, but I have no idea what it is and how big it is and how it works. Can someone explain this to me, or post a picture, coz I'm kinda interested.

So it's basically a grand action in a box for practice use. Sounds like a AvantGrand without the electronic-sound-speaker-combo (please don't start anything!!) Interesting!

I think it's too big for my house though, I've got almost too much stuff (I.e, two pianos, + lots of furniture)

I'm sorry I can't take it, it really looks awesome!,
Good luck,

It does not have a grand action.

There was someone asking for one not long ago in this area. Search for Silent Keyboard.
