Original French polish, eight age cracks to case, some tears to fabric on back, minor scuffing. Original ivory keytops, nice patina, good shape. Bridges: good. Soundboard: Minimal cracks, not a problem. Action: easily correctable dampness issues. Tuning pins and strings: restrung with new strings and oversized pins within the last 20 yrs, in very nice condition. (Aside from the furniture aspect of it, the piano is in good playing condition. After freeing the action and a solid tuning, this will be a nice playing instrument. A high-caliber player might wish to replace several action parts.)
