Yesterday, I bought an upright piano. I had wanted one and this one came up via my cousin's wife.

It is a Kreiter upright. It is in good condition. Fits perfectly in my living room. It all works. Made in Milwaukee. Kreiter went out of business in 1930.

I believe that it may be over 100 years old. Anyone into antiques like this? I am looking for more data on the piano.

I bet it has 52 white/off-white keys and 36 Black keys for a total of 88. If it predates the current standard format then it would have 85 keys. Also to note that it is best to have a piano on an interior wall. If positioned on an exterior wall the sound board can absorb moisture resulting in warping or worst cast a cracked sound board that is untuneable.

I plan on placing it on an interior wall. 36 Black, 52 ivories.

My brother has my grandmothers piano, its absolutely mint condition. Cant remember the make/year but its pretty old. My mom is 80 and said it was there when she was born. Seems like it was bought new in Chicago. We moved it to my brothers house 6-7 years ago. My back still hurts.
