PLEYEL Modèle F - 1/4 de queue
Hand made in Paris, France. The Model F is a 5'4' (1.64 m) baby grand, called a 'quart de queue' or 'quarter tail' in France. All original inside and out, except for one key top. Hammer felt is workable, pin block still holding, action and keyboard fully operational. Soundboard exhibits three buttons and a separation repair.
The case is finished with French polish diamond-bookmatched walnut veneers. Some sunlight-bleaching visible at the tail end and front right corner of the lid (see photos). The thick clear top coat on the lid is lifting at the tail, also due to sunlight exposure. Plate has some stains and blemishes and the soundboard shows light scuff marks from being inexpertly cleaned at some point.
