description

This exceptional piano was built by the Ihlseng, Narvesen, & Lindstad Piano Company in New York City nearly 130 years ago. It is extremely rare in that the keyboard is made entirely of Mother of Pearl rather than ivory, and it has beautiful Mother of Pearl inlay across the front panel as well. Its heavily carved rosewood case features elegant cabriole legs and an ornate pedal lyre, as well as a beautifully grilled music rack. The inside of the piano features brilliantly colored hand-painted flowers, which contrast nicely with the dark greens and gold of the harp. This piano is completely original and the Mother of Pearl is in exceptional condition. The piano needs complete restoration, and by all indications should be a nice, well playing instrument. This is a golden opportunity to own the rarest of the rare. Includes matching stool,
