Pre-1930 Pianos Worth Restoring?

A good piano in poor condition is still a poor piano. Conversely, a medium-grade piano in good condition may be the better investment.

The following is a list of piano manufacturers that made highly regarded pianos pre-1930. The reason 1930 is the cut-off point is that during the Great Depression many piano makers, both good and bad, went bankrupt, and their names were bought up by the surviving companies.
In some cases, the defunct companys design continued to be used, but most of the time, only the name lived on.

This list is from "The Piano Book" by Larry Fine. As Mr. Fine states, this list is not complete , or universally agreed upon, but is merely a guide.
