Briggs Piano Company of Boston

The Briggs Piano Company of Boston, Massachusetts put their plug in for their pianos on this ink blotter featuring Alpine Tavern. 5,000 feet above sea level has to make this one of the highest altitude piano locations at that time. This particular blotter is quite early, most likely before 1900. Michael Patris Collection
