Hi there,
I was wondering if anyone here knows much about the German brand of pianos called Uebel and Lechleiter, 1871-1987. There doesn't seem to be a lot on them.

Our family has had an old upright one for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately I'm trying to sell it as it's part of my dad's estate. I'm getting someone to have a look at it to see what it's condition is. But I don't know much about the brand at all, seeing as there isn't much on them I'm guessing they weren't overly popular or very good.

I'm a bit sad about selling it but I don't play anymore (dreaded short finger disease wink and I can't take it home.
If the number on the soundboard is the serial number (6592) it places the piano as being made in 1903, easily the oldest thing in the house smile

Here's a piccy its in typical unrestored condition.
Das Piano

Uebel and Lechleiter was a German maker of middle of the road pianos. Most German pianos of this era were polished in black shellac; yours has a quite beautiful burl veneer case. While these pianos can be very musical, its age dictates that it probably needs a certain amount of work to get it performing at its top potential.
Sadly, instruments like these don't fetch much in the way of a price on the open market. It's an interesting piece though.
best of luck.

Ahh thankyou for shedding some light on it,
since there aren't a lot of them about in Australia I assumed it was either:
a) Not sold in large quantities or
b) Not the uber high quality stuff.

I did always think it was a lovely looking thing, its watched over the family for about 30-40 years. I hope it can go to someone who can do something with it. Perhaps even convert it into something else if it's playing days are over.

I know this thread was a few months ago - but I just googled "Uebel and Lechleiter" and came up with this thread.

The reason I googled it was to research a "Uebel and Lechleiter" piano at St Stephen's Anglican Church, Coorparoo, Brisbane. Serial Number is 22223.

So it looks like there are at least 2 in Brisbane.
