I just wanted to thank all the respondents regrading the value of
the Faventia street piano. As usual I expand my horizons with every
question. To share the input:
This particular model Faventia was made in Barcelona, Spain, circa late
1950's. It is 6 inches across the front, 17 3/4 inches tall, plays six
tunes, pin-studded cylinder, crank for music in the front and crank on
the bass side for tune selection; opaque-painted with scenes (vs. wood
grain), and placed in a donkey-drawn wagon. Value seems to be from
$750 to $1250.
I was able to bring it to pitch with no damage, and it's holding.

the comeback. Thanks all for your common experiences. This is the
