Antique Werner Piano--Free
Antique Werner Piano--Free
Werner piano made in Chicago around 1915. Great piano with a lot of potential. The soundboard needs repair (repairs estimated at ~1K), but the cost of repairs would be comparable to buying a very basic newer used upright from a piano store, and the sound quality of this piano would be MUCH BETTER. Also a few nicks and scratches and one missing ivory.

There is some evidence on the harp of where the player action used to be; the harp has been repaired to prevent rust. A small amount of rust is present today, so I'll have the piano technician take a look. The soundboard is in pretty good shape, only one minor crack.
