Beautifully detailed woodwork on this Kimball piano

This beautiful example of an antique Kimball upright piano was found in a thrift store in Durham, NC. I especially love the scrolling details on the front of the cabinet. This would make a great candidate for restoration as these pianos were very solidly built and considered to be of good quality during this time period.

I did notice one major design drawback though. Do you see it? Look closely at the key cover. Where do you place the sheet music while you are playing?
