Lavish B. Shoninger Louis XV "Salon" Model Upright Piano In Red Mahogany Carved Cabinet
This piano is one of the most beautifully carved upright pianos ever produced. It was built by the Bernard Shoninger Piano Company of New Haven, CT, in 1909. B. Shoninger built high quality, expensive pianos from 1850-1929, one of the many American piano companies to go under with the great depression. According to its original turn-of-the-century sales catalog, (see photos), this piano was sold as the Louis XV Salon Upright Model.
This Shoninger piano was painted yellow by its previous owner, but underneath the yellow paint it has beautiful Honduras mahogany wood which will be stunning after restoration. The overall look of this mahogany piano will be very formal and elegant. It will rival any new quality upright piano for musical quality and tone. Pianos like this simply aren't readily available today. They would have been afforded only by the wealthy of the era, hence their rarity today.
If you are looking for the best quality and the biggest possible sound in an upright piano, this piano is it. If you can see the beautiful through the yellow paint, you will see that this is one of the loveliest pianos we have available.
This piano comes with a matching stool, and can be equipped with computerized player mechanisms if desired.
