After some major searching, I found 2 old piano catalogs that had gone missing in my house several years ago. I've posted pictures in two threads on the Piano Technicians Forum. Here are the links:

Ivers & Pond Piano early 1890's Catalog

Sterling Pianos 1889 Catalog

Really awesome, it saddened me how such beautiful pianos aren't really made anymore. I want one!

In the Sterlings, it says they have repeating action? I guess that's double escapement action? I've read that most uprights these days don't have it, and that it's an advantage of grand pianos over uprights...

Thanks for posting!
