Friends. I have been contacted by a Wantage resident who is moving. They have ca. mid 1800s Lindeman & sons baby grand piano that they cannot take with them. The piano is not operational but it could be a great looking piece for display with some TLC. They would like to see the piano go into a museum or an old, historic type home where it can be seen by others. It is free to the right party. It is disassembled, ready to move and are offering free local delivery if needed. If you are interested or know someone who is, message me and I will put you in contact with the person. Here is a picture of the disassembled piano. Below are the pictures of the disassembled piano that I was given.
