In Conjunction with Period Piano Center this is an image I took a few years ago documenting pianos. I did drop out the background and add the name of the piano.

Hello David,
I believe you have the 4mm brass inlay style decal. Here is a sample of that one new. It is almost an identical copy of yours without the flares on the sides of the font. As one can see the dots to complete the umlaut are separate from the rest of the decal, so one can elect to use them or not. In your case there, without the dots, could be quite collectable.

Dan,

Collectable, perhaps, but as a German speaker, I don't like the sound of "Bluthner" at all (besides the fact that it's simply spelt wrongly).

"Blüthner" could be translated as "Blossomer", while "Bluthner" would probably best be translated as "Bloodner"...

(Somewhat off-topic:
I see I can no longer comment your photos without joining Google+. Ugh - what an irritation!)

Larry,

That is an awesome picture. Is that from your trip to Belgium?

This is fun. I have 2 I can add easily. Here is an overhead view of a rosewood three piece rim "Centennial" concert grand piano by Steinway.



The next one is a very bad shot of one of our new Cunningham pianos in our showroom... with Andre Watts discussing a piece he just played on it.

Thanks for the comment Charles. The answer is neither. There is a separate tenor bridge carrying wire strings, from D2 to Ab3. The picture shows these crossing the treble strings, which start rather high up the keyboard at A3. The tenor strings run alongside and parallel to the bass wound bichords. The bass itself is scarcely overstrung, up to E2 it is not overstrung at all. Possibly for this reason the bass has a pleasantly incisive tone. This was the standard Bluethner design for a number of years around 1880.
