Maybe someone knows a little more about this piano and would like to share...

These three pictures are all I have...

It looks to be early 1880s to me, but when Bill drops in
he'll tell you more because he will probably know when the firm who sold it were in business. There may be a number inside amongst the tuning pins (probably the left hand end) and this will help date it a little more accurately.
I play for my own amazement... :piano;

Plusnet having been doing me proud, but not actually fixing the internet for 3 weeks. I will examine the photos, but 1880s looks likely.
