Handsome Ludwig Mission Style Upright Piano In Quarter Sawn Oak
This beautiful Ludwig piano is an outstanding example of the early 20th Century Arts & Crafts style in furniture design. The Ludwig had a reputation for making fine quality, high priced instruments, and now, even prior to restoration, the piano has a deep rich tone quality rarely found in new upright pianos today.
Pianos of true Arts & Crafts style are quite rare, as few were actually made. This piano is made of quarter sawn oak, and has inset panels across the front and bottom of the instrument. Note the inset panels along the legs and sides, classic traits of the Arts & Crafts style. As seen in the photos, the piano is in a very light gold oak color, however, it can easily be finished to any color or sheen of finish desired. An original matching piano bench is included. This piano can be fitted with a computerized player mechanisms if desired.
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.
