FS: Early 1900s Winter Player in Philadelphia
By Eric Martin

For sale: Early 1900s Winter & Co. player piano in Philadelphia suburbs,

I'm looking to sell my father's player piano.  It has been in our
house since he passed 10-1/2 years ago.  However, my mother recently
moved to a retirement community and she needs to sell the house.

We had it appraised several years ago at around $3000.  At this point,
we'd just like to see it go to a good home and for someone to love it
as my father did.  That said, no reasonable offer will be refused.

The player itself is in very good condition, given it's age, and the
appraiser stated it was rebuilt 20 to 30 years ago.  The finish is a
beautiful flamed walnut, and will clean up nicely with a little TLC.
If you would like to come check it out in person, that can also be

We also have boxes of rolls in storage from the early 1900s on,
probably around 300 total in varying conditions, which will also go
with the piano.  For pictures, please e-mail me at [delete ".geentroep" to reply].
