Challen 4ft 4in Baby Grand Acoustic Piano | Mahogany| Used | Bolton Store
This Challen Baby Grand Piano in a mahogany finish was manufactured in approximately 1930. Externally it looks OK for its age, there are signs of wear & tear as you would expect, but overall it looks OK. Internally this piano has been regularly tuned and its at concert pitch. The key action is nice and responsive too! If you are looking for a baby grand piano and need it to be compact this is about as compact as you get and for the price I think this is great value for money.

1926 the new managing director, William Evans, formerly from Chappell, who redeveloped a 5-foot(152cm) “baby” grand piano, that Challen had produced earlier in the century. By employing large-scale production techniques, Challen was able to reduce the price of this instrument from £125 to £65 and it subsequently became so popular that it almost displaced the upright piano from English homes. The Great Depression that hit most piano manufacturers in the 1930s did not seem to affect Challen: production rose from 500 pianos in 1925 to 2500 in 1935.
