Stunning & Rare Louis XV Style Parlor Grand by C. Kurtzmann & Company of Buffalo, Equipped With Computerized Player Mechanisms
Established in 1848, C. Kurtzmann & Company produced high-grade, superior quality pianos for nearly a century. Kurtzmann has always enjoyed the reputation of building exceedingly well made, expensive pianos.
This is a very rare example of the highly carved Louis XV Style in ribbon-grand Honduras Mahogany wood. In all respects, this piano appears to be a virtual copy of the famous Steinway M Louis XV parlor grand piano right down to the design of the rim and bracing for the soundboard and plate. Many Louis XV style parlor grand pianos are rather delicate in design, but this piano is large, heavy and impressive throughout. The tone and touch of this piano rivals name brand pianos which would retail for twice the cost, and the breathtaking wood-grain and hand-carved design is actually more beautiful than most. Note the elaborate scalloping around the edges of the lid, a feature found only on the most expensive, high grade Louis XV grand pianos from the era. This piano has been restored to like new condition, inside and out, and has been equipped with computerized player mechanisms which play wirelessly from iPod, iPad, computer, etc.
