Amongst my modest  library of piano books I have a  wonderful brochure of C Bechstein pianos which dates from pre 1914.  The Model 7, which is the second tallest of the uprights, measuring 4ft 5½ “ (135cm) and called ‘The Upright Drawing Room Grand’ would have been very expensive and in my experience very few have survived.
We were therefore lucky to have a beautifully restored example in our Auction on the 22nd September 2016.

Lot 48 Bechstein (c1897) A Model 7 upright in a rosewood case.  This piano was restored by Morley’s in 1981.  Hammer Price:  £720.
