My wife's grandadfather has recently died and we are in the process of sorting his house out. This Piano has been in the family for aprox 60 years, but has been dated to somewhere around 1890 - 1910This is an Upright traditional Piano aprx 5-6 ft in a nice wood finish, marked on front W Rogers & Son Weymouth - Full Trichord. The casework looks German - very attractive, and typical of the late 1800's - some Schiedmayer & Carl Mand pianos have a similar looking moulding around the front panel, so the floral design is set back - almost 3D looking. The truss work at either side continues onto the cheeks, and then recessed for the legs - so very German, and I think the cabinet only was exported. Lovely cabinet work - and attractive.... Piano will require cleaning & tuning...... Piano is located in Highworth, nr Swindon
