Hi,
I have just inherited a Robert Westphal, Berlin piano from my parents. It is an upright piano with walnut finish. It is fairly out of tune.
I wondered is any one has any information on
- When these pianos were made
- How much they are worth
- How much would it cost to restore/tune it
- Is it worth the effort or should I invest in a more modern piano
- My children are keen to learn
Thanks
Jeff Downie

Robert Westphall (2 L's)Berlin 1894 The Atlas says nothing else about it.
I'm afraid there's not much value in any old uprights.Have a good tech. check it out for you. I would not sink much money in it. It cannot ever
be recouped.Let you kids play around with it, see if they like Piano. If so invest in a low price or used piano.
Merry Christmas.
