Exceptionally Rare Mission/Arts & Crafts Style Autopiano Player Piano
This is an exceedingly rare model of an Arts & Crafts/Mission style Autopiano player piano. This piano plays a paper music roll and is operated by foot pumping bellows below the keyboard. We have only listed two of these pianos over the years one was previously restored and sold (and featured in the previous listing) and this one in original, unrestored and available for sale. This piano can be restored to any shade/color or finish, and an electric pumping motor can be installed (which will not take away from the original pumping pedals) once a customer places an order for it. A matching Arts & Crafts bench is included. These Arts & Crafts/Mission style instruments were made in very limited numbers, and are nearly impossible to find today.
Note the original Advertisement for this piano (see photos) describing it as the "Style S Mission Oak" model.
Note: As founder of The Antique Piano Shop, I have personally collected Mission / Arts & Crafts style pianos for over 25 years. I have a great passion for anything Mission / Arts & Crafts, including Craftsman homes, furniture, and accessories. If you are a true Arts & Crafts enthusiast, you will appreciate how impossible it is to find true Arts & Crafts / Mission style pianos in today’s market. Nearly three decades of collecting and preserving these “impossible to find” instruments has allowed me the opportunity to present the largest collection of true Mission / Arts & Crafts style instruments anywhere in the world.
We are proud to offer the serious enthusiast the option of adding an authentic period instrument for their Craftsman home.
