I found a Wurlitzer upright from the 30s that lived on a riverboat in Wisconsin,then in a resort.It's painted red,41" tall,61 notes. 3 keys are not chipped..the red appears to be the original color.Under the keyboard was a small key,bobby pin,a 1946 penny and a matchbook advertising the Chula Vista resort hotel and Hotel Witter.I've been wanting one of these lil uprights for a long time.

Probably just on the action,and maybe the keyboard.I think I'll leave the case as found,I don't mind character marks.I'll bring in a tuner after it's been here a while.The Wurlitzer joins a herd of 2 Melodigrands and 2 Gulbransen Pinafores.I love the sound of these lil pianos.I'll post a pic if my camera battery will take a charge.

Oh my it's adorable! I wouldn't touch the case either, it's perfect as is...
The bit of height is what makes it for me....what a great deal! Enjoy smile

I took the action out and retrieved a piece of poolroom chalk,a jigsaw puzzle piece and a plastic hairpin from between the hammers and dampers..replaced a burned (!?!) bridle strap,reglued a jack flange and put a lot of hammer springs back in place.Now all notes play.The middle and upper sections are playable,the bass is badly in need of tuning.I'm happy with it..
