I found an old piano harp nailed to the side of a building last year. It's made of cast iron, has no words or numbers on it, and the keyboard width would have been 46". Anyone have any ideas what it might have belonged to?

A Piano.

There is no possible way to identify it without photos.

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

Even with photos it might be a challenge if no name is on the plate.

I just found out that it's a harp for a straight-strung piano, something I've never seen before. I'll take some pictures later.
