Well, it makes a pleasant change from typewriters - I wonder what the postage would be?

Well, this seems to be genuine allright. But I think it is rather younger than John Benjamin’s time. Probably Maggie Burns can tell you through which years Henry Riley would have been running the Tolkien piano business.

Oh, I'd have thought that Riley's was the name of the shop that sold this piano. Does that sound right?

On afterthought that could also be. One for Maggie Burns to answer.
