The Antique Piano Shop is proud to feature this amazing musical piece, a Berry Wood Coin Operated Nickelodeon Player Piano, an extremely rare coin-operated Berry Wood Nickelodeon Player Piano With Stunning Art Glass Front that is offered by the Antique Piano Shop.
This lovely Berry-Wood piano was originally built as a coin-operated nickelodeon piano in the first decade of the 20th Century. When the nickel dropped in the slot, the stain glass panels would light up and the piano would play forth lively tunes of the era. Initially designated as the Style F by it’s maker, this piano originally had a set of either flute-toned or violin-toned organ pipes that would play along in harmony with the piano melody.
This handsome instrument is a wonderful example of an early transitional piece from the Victorian to the Craftsman design. It is in the process of being restored to a state of perfection and can be rebuilt either as an original coin-operated Nickelodeon piano or the QRS Pianomation system can be added to this historical piece as well. An original matching bench is included with this outstanding piano.
