I like to use lemon oil on fine furniture. There is a brand called Kerosene which could do wonders for this piano.

Very sad I think. It looks like a large old Sohmer (concert grand?). Certainly deserved better than that.

I liked the name of this piano. I am sure it came from one of the more exotic parts of Germany.

Yep, it's right on the bank of the Pearl River. It's just south of Bejingburg.

And their piano craftsmen are distant cousins of the Kayserburg family.

Not really funny, but it is interesting to see one of these:

Lindner grand.

It is interesting; I had thought all of those Lindner grand’s were long gone by this point. The Lindner concept was a good idea, poorly executed.

The Lindner grands were not bad, except that you periodically have to tighten the bolts that hold the soundboard to the frame to keep it from buzzing.

The Lidner is interesting. It makes me wonder if a piano could be engineered to fit in a murphy bed apparatus.
