Very Rare Adam Schaaf Mission Style Upright Piano In Handsome Quarter Sawn Oak Cabinet
This is a rare Mission upright by the Adam Schaaf Piano Company of Chicago. Built in 1907, this piano is made of handsome quarter sawn oak wood in the Craftsman style. According to its original turn-of-the-century sales catalog (see photos), this piano was sold as the "Mission Cabinet Grand" model. This piano has some of the most amazing quarter sawn oak grain we have ever seen, and it has been restored to perfection inside and out. The tone rivals any new upright piano built today. An original matching bench is included. These original Mission style upright pianos are some of the rarest and most desirable pianos in todays market. A matching oak bench is included. Computerized player mechanisms can be installed 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.
