Bechstein Grand piano
Grand Piano Restoration for a customer in Hertfordshire. Rare Satinwood Bechstein Grand piano (circa 1905) with matching piano stool. After a complete restoration and re-upholstered in Bechstein blue fabric.
Damp storage conditions led to substantial water damage, which required extensive re-veneering and marquetry on all leg sections and around the piano body to match the original satinwood, tulipwood and Kingwood. The piano was fully stripped down and French Polished to return it to its original glory.

Existing finishes can be repolished to repair small areas of damage. Severely damaged, bleached or crazed finishes generally require stripping off before repolishing. Careful preparation including steaming out indented damage and re-glueing bistered veneers is essential to achieve perfect results.
