Value of Faventia Barrel Piano
By Andy Linss

-- non-subscriber, please reply to sender and MMD --

I have a Faventia barrel piano that is in working order.  It is
severely out of tune but seems to play and contains a wood block and
triangle.  It is missing the wooden upper front covers, which were
replaced with clear Lucite, I suppose so the workings would show during
operation.  It has an electric motor which I have not attempted to play
with.  The paint is in good condition other than a couple of significant
scratches on the lower legs.  I have four brass cylinders with various
melodies, including one with Christmas songs.

Do you have any idea what this could be worth?  I have never seen one
before and was curious.  I recently saw a smaller barrel piano that was
for sale for $450, but it was not electric and was much smaller albeit
in complete condition.  Please email at <>
