|Make:||Mason & Hamlin|
Screwstringers came in a number of sizes and configurations. This one is known as Style B and is 7' 5" long. The case style is more along the lines of a European grand.
To tune the piano a tuner can use the supplied wrench (just visible clipped to the back of the cornice) or use the T hammer that came supplied in the uprights. The cornice is removable by undoing two locking screws to lift the cornice away exposing the heads of the J Hooks for tuning. Built in 1896 this must have been one of the last screwstringers made.
The legs and lyre apper original and are of the more modern Mason & Hamlin design.
