1919 Townsend and Tomson Player Piano (Edinburgh and London, est. 1829) with 15 piano rolls (more available) and clawfoot piano chair with height adjustment. Was fully restored and motorized when I bought it seven years ago. Includes vintage and new QRS piano rolls (they still make new piano rolls - includes a catalog). Has foot pump pedals, but I rarely used them. Price $250 cash.
Townsend and Tomson were piano retailers in Scotland in the 1800s and early 1900s and probably had the pianos made to their specifications. John Malcolm & Co. of London made the actual piano roll players. More info is available online from the UK Piano Discussion Forums.
I think an air hose has come loose inside to the player action and this should be a simple repair. Piano is playable on its own, but probably needs tuned. The piano has either solid roll player door or glass roll player door. The piano is heavy and I use Freeburg Piano Co. in Hendersonville to move it locally ($200 up). Selling because we need room for other furniture.
This is a tremendous bargain for someone who loves antiques and player pianos.
