Bremar piano

Post by bren » 15 Jul 2016, 16:06

Hello just moved into a house and found a bremar piano. It's clearly been left for quite a long time and I was considering having it tuned and keeping it but not sure if it is worth it. I've browsed the Internet but can't find one like it so I'm going to post a picture .
Thanks for any help.

This is a typical Jacobean-style model of the twenties, as described at
http://www.pianohistory.info/edwardian.html

However, yours is a rare variant which has the pedals on top, the keys upside-down, so that you can play it whilst standing on your head. :D

The Bremar name was used by the Waddington factory, and if you remove the bottom door (the front panel below the keyboard) you may find a date on the iron frame.
