description

Chickering & Sons was the first piano manufacturer in America, established in 1823 and is said to have built the finest pianos in the world. Long before names such as Steinway, etc., Chickering held top awards world wide for piano design and manufacturing. This piano is an excellent example of the Rococo Victorian Style Chickering Square Grand that was once very popular in American homes. Note the elaborate carvings on the legs and music rack. This piano is currently being restored to like new condition, inside and out. The delicate "harp like" tone of these square pianos is truly one of the loveliest sounds one can experience. Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired.
