Regent pianos were manufactured by the illustrious Blasius & Sons Piano Company of Philadelphia. The Regent line was introduced in about 1890, and they were known for being very good quality pianos at affordable prices. Regent was set up as an affordable alternative to the costlier Blasius brand name, while at the same time offering comparable quality. We have seen a handful of Regent instruments come through our shop over the years, and they have been consistently very well made pianos. After the Great Depression, the Regent name was produced by the famous Lester Piano Company, and the name was discontinued right around World War 2.
