Beautiful Antique Ivers & Pond, Partially Restored, Hand Det
I am selling my Ivers & Pond 1899 upright piano. It's a beautiful piece, I've not seen another like it. It has been partially restored - the exterior has a beautiful tortoise shell finish. There are a few small nicks and the wheel is missing on the front left. Otherwise, it looks great. The interior needs some work. I've gotten quotes, anywhere from $500 - $1000 on the work that needs to be done internally. A few of the strings are broken, which I have purchased custom replacements for - but have not installed. The pegs need to be hammered in. The felts on the strings are sticking, so need to be shaved down or replaced entirely. I was assured that shaving them down would stop the keys from sticking. There is some minor repair work that needs to be done to the action as well. I just haven't had the means to get this done, and would rather it go to a home that will do it justice.
