An article in the New York Times today.

There was another Tom Thumb piano that was used at a night club where I tune. It was hauled around in a wagon to serenade the patrons back in another life. Today, the grandson of the founder brought it home for his children to play on, although they may have outgrown it by now.

Reading between the lines, it sounds like the piano is toast as an instrument. And it sure ain't pretty. But as a piece of movie memorabilia, it's pretty special.

58 keys. And no more. I thought they got it wrong and it was an 85-key piano. Then I saw it.

Good lord, $602,000??

I know that Picasso's artworks have sold for upwards of $50 million at auction, and I believe the $100 million mark has been passed numerous times.

Money exists on a logarithmic scale. That's the only way I can explain it.

Ironically without the movie fanfare the piano probably would end up in a landfill...
