Carl Ehrlich Berlin Upright Piano

Post by smj276 » 07 Feb 2018, 10:40

Hi All.

We have just inherited a piano and are wondering if it is worth fixing up or just getting rid of.
I have looked on line and cant find anything about this particular brand.

The brand on the piano is Carl Ehlrich Berlin. It has a single crown and we have the serial number. I’ve taken a number of images that can be seen here. https://photos.app.goo.gl/qtleWSJviEYogBSW2

Doesn anyone have any knowledge on this brand? Does it have any value or should we just give it away?

Any ideas where I can find more information?

Any information is appreciated?

Thanks in advance

Shane

All I can say is it looks very much like the German uprights of the 1890s shown near the top of the page at

but I have no exact dates. Nobody anywhere can guess the value or condition of a piano without inspecting it on the spot, and checking how well it holds in tune, so your local tuner is the best person to ask.
