How do you suppose it managed to end up upside-down?

As well as the piano scale designer, I wonder if anyone who created the piano case got credit.

That Knabe of FS Keyes is an example.

I'd speculate it flipped over when the house collapsed.

Note to Ron: So much for my wild idea. The plate's warped and broken in a couple of places. Based on what happened to it, along with other iron and steel items, we're guessing the fire inside the house must have gotten to at least 1,500∘F.

Kathy, IIRC, that's the first time that piano's been posted here.

Wait 'til Zorba sees it!

(It pegs my meter, too!)
