Renardi Upright Piano, seems to be brown "French Polish" techniques, but some fading and green tint on side pannels has occured. Doubld Pedal system, "Over-damper-hammer" system inside casing. Inlay panel on keyboard lid reads "MACKAY BROS SOLE AGENTS TRANSVAAL" and name of Piano "RENARDI". Number printed on cast iron frame reads "22005". Keyboard has only 85 keys, not ivory, with black notes, not sure if it's ebony! Front Panel has "Candle Stick" Panel and marks on inside suggest that the original candle sticks were removed and the hole were covred up.
Would like to know the history of this particula model and make, were there more than one series made, who made them, where did they come from, Why the over-damper-hammer system? How old is this model, is it from 1922? How much would it fetch?
Pictures to follow shortly!
