I stumbled across this piano in a Montour Falls, Ny bar. It has no name on the fallboard or any other identification. However the openings in the frame seem to be unusual and perhaps unique. Here is a pic of the piano:

Dave!

Good to "see" you here. You have been scarce for a while.

Unfortunately, this was a common shape for tone holes in the 19th c. and many makes had these. Do you have any other photos?

Thanks for the response, Rich. I have other photos but they simply show a small unremarkable grand piano.

The fact that it is late 1800's is interesting and I suppose consistent with the condition of the strings which were quite rusty. smile
