description

This piano is known as a Cottage Grand Piano, one of Broadwood's most famous European style baby grand pianos. Although the instrument is about 6.5 feet long, it is only about 49 inches wide giving it a very petite and delicate appearance. Note the unusual shape and overall look of this piano – it is very striking in appearance. These small grand pianos were quite popular in 19th Century parlors and Country House boudoirs. It is made in the Empire Revival style, typical of the turn of the century English grand pianos. It is being restored to like new condition, inside and out.
