This Lester piano is made of beautiful exotic-grain burl walnut wood and is of elegant Sheraton carved style. This model was the largest and most expensive upright piano in the Lester product line in 1945.

From the close-up photo, you will see that the grain in the wood is very close together. When the tree was growing 100 – 200 years ago, the world’s forests were very dense and trees had to struggle to grow. As a result, the wood rings are very close together due to slower growth. This wood with tight rings is more resonate and has much better tone quality than new pianos.
