Antique, Rosewood Bechstein Grand Piano with a Rococo Style Rosewood Case and Brass Ormulu Mounts

Ornate, Bechstein  grand Piano for sale  with a  rosewood case and  Brass Ormulu Mounts.

An 1897 , Bechstein grand piano with a rosewood case in Louis XV, rococo style. Ornate, brass Ormulu Mounts cover the entire case. The pierced, legs mimic the shape of the piano lyre. This Bechstein piano formerly belonge resided at Swinton Park, North Yorkshire and belonged to William Whitelaw, Home Secretary under Margaret Thatcher.
William Stephen Ian Whitelaw, 1st Viscount Whitelaw, KT, CH, MC, PC, DL (28 June 1918 1 July 1999), often known as Willie Whitelaw, was a British Conservative Party politician who served in a wide number of Cabinet positions, most notably as Home Secretary and Deputy Prime Minister.

Swinton Park, Masham, Ripon, North Yorkshire. The Cunliffe-Lister family (who later took the Swinton title), bought Swinton Park, a blackened stone stately home on the outskirts of Masham in the early 1880s. At the time, the estate had been shortlisted by Queen Victoria as a possible country residence, but she chose Sandringham in Norfolk instead, where the shooting was said to be a little less challenging. There is a strong political history at Swinton Park visitors include Churchill and Chamberlain. Scratchy cine-film footage is available to guests on a homespun video, showing Harold Macmillan and Rab Butler enjoying a snifter on the neighbouring grouse moors. 'Willie' Whitelaw was a regular and Ted Heath and Reggie Maudling were filmed meeting on the Swinton lawns.
