FS: Weber Duo-Art Grand Owned by Irene Castle
By Richard Friedman

I am posting this on behalf of a collector in upstate New York.  For
sale is a Weber 5'8" Model WR 1920 Duo-Art grand once owned by the
famous dancer Irene Castle (and second husband) during her short
marriage in Ithaca, New York.

The hammers and keytops were neatly replaced about 30 years ago,
and some pneumatic work done, but at this point the buyer can assume
a complete rebuild is in order.  I looked over this piano briefly,
and might be able to field a few technical questions, otherwise any
interested parties can deal directly with the seller, Phil, tel.
1-607-387-6308 evenings.  The asking price is $700, and the piano is
located near Trumansburg, New York.
