description

This piano is a beautiful turn-of-the-century Chickering parlor grand piano in carved rosewood, circa 1897. This particular model is the 109C, and it is unusual because of its width. Note how wide the back of the piano is...this is to increase the size of the soundboard area, making the piano more resonate and powerful. This piano will amaze you with its tone and power! The beautiful rosewood cabinet will be just stunning after restoration. Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired. An authentic matching stool is included.
