description

This Whitney upright piano was built by the Kimball Piano Company of Chicago in 1906 and is made of quarter sawn oak. Oak Victorian pianos are less common than mahogany or rosewood because the darker finishes were more popular at the time. Since oak was a common domestic wood, it was not considered to be exotic and was rarely used for piano cabinets, making it rare and desirable today. This Whitney piano has been refinished and restored, and is a beautifully striking piece of furniture as well as a very satisfying musical instrument. Includes matching stool. This piano can be fitted with a computerized player.
