Amazing Gothic Influenced Mission Style Mehlin Upright Piano
Like other makers, Mehlin built a limited number of Craftsman style pianos during the early 20th Century. This particular piano was known as the "Gothic Mission Design", as featured in The International Studio magazine, October, 1911 (see the our online Museum under "Mehlin" for a copy of original advertisement as it appeared in The International Studio magazine)
This piano once belonged in a California commune, and it is interesting to note the unique paintings and art work that adorned this piano when we found it! (See "before restoration" photos) What a wonderful and fascinating life this piano must have had! This piano will be put back to a historically correct finish during restoration.
Adorned with arches, mortise and tenon joints, and other stunning Gothic/Mission details, this piano is one of the most unusual and amazing Craftsman style pianos we have ever seen. It has been restored to like-new condition, with a historically correct finish. Computerized player mechanisms are available at additional cost. A matching bench is included.
