General description: Pyramid mahogany case. Ivory naturals and ebony sharps. Decorative metal hitchpin plate. New square tuning pins, new strings, new bass strings, as this piano was restored in the past. There are acorn finials on each side of the keyboard that are used to take the nameboard out which indicates some Viennese influence as this feature is common with Viennese pianos of this period. There is one pedal connected to the piano via an unusual decorative cast iron lyre, the pedaling being a damper.
