The picture on this page is of my wonderful Bechstein piano. It’s an Arts and Crafts style piano from the early 20th century. I’ve seen another one on the internet dated 1906 so it’s from round about then. It was given to me by my old piano teacher. It was her husbands who no longer plays it due to illness. I haven’t spoken to her for a few years, but I’m sure she’d be happy to know it’s still looked after.
I was looking around on the internet for other pianos like it and came across this one that’s for sale in America. I’m not looking to sell mine, but these guys have done a really good job at restoring it. I’d love to restore mine, but I’m no furniture expert so I wouldn’t want to botch it. Perhaps one day I can pay for a professional restoration.
