Woodchester Grand piano?

Post by keys44kids » 28 Aug 2018, 21:55

The non-profit I work for recently had a Woodchester grand piano donated to us. I have searched everywhere and can find nothing about woodchester ever making a grand. Does anyone have any idea what we could be looking at?

Woodchester pianos in Stroud never asked me to add a grand to their website and I can't see an older version of the company is it an old piano or a newish one

Apart from the new uprights, I am not aware of a past piano firm named Woodchester, but Woodchester in Stroud was the home of the Stroud Piano Co., later known as Bentley, so I imagine the name was used by them.
