PIANO made into a bar with mirrors

Postby EShumofsky » 14 Jan 2008, 20:16

I recently aquired a piano that does not play, but when you open the top in converts into a bar.

There is a seal that says J R YATES London

keys look Ivory and it is a cherry red
does anyone have any knowledge of this

Yates

I only deal with piano history, We know of W.R. Yates, but not J.R., the bar is obviously a conversion of an old wreck that wasn't worth saving as a musical instrument.
