Century Piano Company
The Century Piano Company (not to be confused with the Century Manufacturing Company) was a smaller scale piano manufacturer based in Minneapolis, MN during the turn-of-the-century era. Established in 1890, The Century Piano Company was owned by members of the prestigious Mehlin Piano Company family. Century primarily built upright pianos under the names of Century Piano Company, Anderson Piano Company, Symphonic and Philharmonic. Most pianos built by The Century Piano Company that we’ve seen were built during the 1890 – 1900 period, indicating that the firm remained a relatively small manufacturer after 1900 when most other companies expanded significantly.
