I think the keys are ivory. It's by HW Meyer of Schwerin. I think it's early 20th century!

Re: How old is my piano?

I would guess around 1920, but we have no way of dating it accurately from this information. Some dates of Meyer's serial numbers are available, so open the top and see if there are any numbers visible, perhaps in the 20,000 range. If your tuner thinks it is safe to remove the action, it may be marked on the back with the action makers' name and number, and I may be able to date this.
