Above:  The cabinet was modified like many older verticals, the toes were cut off, the legs replaced with spindly independent ones;  the ornamentation removed. 

Below:  Similar Th. Steinweg Vertical #568 in Spain without cabinet modification;  #645 cabinet was “streamlined”, originally it probably looked more like #568.  Internal design is identical.
