Hi, I have recently received a Willard Co. upright piano that is obviously quite old. I've been able to obtain some minor information on it, but I'd really like to know as much as I can about the piano. Any information anyone could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It was made in 1902 with the help of rats! Clever little teeth did all those carvings, and little tails dipped in ink did the striping. smile

My teacher would have a cow if he saw that cup on a piano... Even one built by rats! (Where I live, squirrels do the carving.)

I'm not sure how the cup ended up on the piano, and I'm told my 5 yr old took the picture... lol. Anyway, if squirrels in your neighborhood carve pianos you should catch them and open a factory...

Anyhow, does anyone else know anything about the piano?
