Our Gallery & Online Museum will give you a sense of the piano’s place in society during the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Through our extensive ephemera collection, photos and historical texts, we are able to share nearly 200 years of history that has been locked away in private collections for decades.
Scroll through original sales catalogs, vintage advertising and trade cards for a rare glimpse into the piano & organ industry as it was over a century ago!
Our Online Museum Gallery is continuously being updated. If you do not see your piano or organ’s brand name represented below, send us an email and our staff will attempt to add that name and related pertinent information as soon as possible.
Although most of our listings here are shown with scanned images of catalogs, advertising and related ephemera, many of the more obscure listings do not yet have images available. Our online museum is constantly being updated as new information and images are discovered and acquired.
Our primary goal is to promote awareness and preservation of these irreplaceable instruments. A great deal of time and expense has been involved in purchasing, collecting and archiving this historic ephemera collection so that it can be shared and preserved. If you have material you would like to submit, or if you have vintage piano/organ related ephemera you would like to donate or sell, please contact us at email@example.com
