A member of our staff took home an old piano that was sadly beyond repair (insect damage). We had previously disassembled the piano and he recycled it. It's now serving as a planter while pumping out 2000 gallons of water/hr as a fountain!

Any guesses about the piano?

That is just lovely. I am now inspired to compose an Ode to Tuberous Begonias by the Waterfall.

Now I understand what Handel was thinking.

It's much easier to bash a Steinway than it is to play one.

Judging by the flowers, it must be a Growtrian .

But then again, the pool indicates it is a Basindorfer .

Since it doesn't have the bird logo, it can't be a Gullbransen .

Maybe it is a KaWa-Wa .

I'm sure its plumbing is from Kohler .

I'm just curious. How much Seiler was used to create that landscaping Everett? Let's all Sauter over and I'm sure that it will Shimmel in the sunlight.

(Please forgive me, Please)

Well done, Marty.

I would add that this outdoor display appears to have been built by a Forster,

and probably an August one at that,

since it seems to be fashioned of Broadwood.

It's lovely though. I can just hear the birds Chickering away.

I bet they'll Pleyel Sohmer long in that fountain.

I have to wonder... how does the water get back into the piano? Maybe pipes underground going up through the legs?!

smile Either way, it's really quite pretty, thanks for sharing!

If the lyre were still attached, that would be a great way to pipe the water back up!

The pipe runs up beside the front left leg. The legs are not original and the lyre had already been recycled.

I think it's excellent. I want one!

It looks like a pretty old instrument with the squared tail.

Well if the legs are not original, the lyre is gone,there is no music rack, you can't see the plate (which i am sure has been removed) then how can we guess?

...BTW, my guess is a 1930's Baldwin - but the legs are leading me there. wink

Is this what musicians are talking about when they say "They are in the flow"?

If it is indeed a Steinway, by watering it down this will dilute the quality of the brand……
