This piano belonged to Harold Lloyd, but then either belonged to Debbie Reynolds or Carrie Fisher. Judging from the picture it looks like the action has some issues. Already sold, but if it actually went for the estimated price, was that a good deal?

Edit - there's also a Yamaha upright that sounds like it was actually taken care of.

Not to my taste at all. I think it puts the Uggggg! into ugly.

It's not a style that I find attractive either!

Actually, this is a player and the photograph was likely taken while it was playing. It looks to be in original condition but that is difficult to tell from this photo.

There's something odd about that piano. I was looking for more info, and it looks like it was also auctioned off in March 2016 to someone listed as "L. Rice."

Here's a different Harold Lloyd piano.
