We own a Schleicher Upright Mirra Model # 46848 piano. It's over 5 feet tall and has a mirror across the top of it above the music holder. It was left in our house by the previous owner as she didn't want to have to move it when she sold us the house. It was a Christmas gift to her from her husband back in the 50's. It was reconditioned at that time and was sold for $380. I have the sales tag that came with it with the list of all the things they did to recondition it. The lady said she knows it came from New York Originally. There are about 10 keys that are out of tune. I've tried to locate a piano tuner but most say it's not worth tuning a piano this old since they become warped. Thank you for your story about the history of the makers. Perhaps it will help me convince a tuner that it can be done and is worthwhile. My daughter has taken up piano playing because of this piano. Although she's insisting that we get her an electronic keyboard instead and get rid of this antique (typical teenager). I've tried looking up info about this particular model online and haven't had much luck.
