description

During the 19th Century, The Weber Piano won their fame and stellar reputation by building exceedingly well made instruments as the piano evolved into the modern instrument we know today. By the turn of the 20th Century, Weber was one of the best pianos money could buy.

In the late ‘teens and ‘twenties era, American interior design and décor saw a huge revival in period and historical furniture styles. This “Renaissance” led to the creation of some of the most unique and beautiful pianos ever built. These instruments are true works of art, and were generally reserved for only the highest quality instruments.

Built in 1928, This Weber baby grand piano is a stunning example of the elaborate Venetian Style in custom-painted blues, greens and golds. The piano is entirely covered with beautifully vivid florals, ribbons and Fleur-de-lis designs, all hand painted in exquisite detail. With its elegantly carved triple legs, pedal lyre & molding, the overall appearance of this beautiful instrument is truly reminiscent of the “old world”. Although the instrument’s internal mechanisms are being restored to perfection, the paintings will remain original so that they will retain their lovely antique and aged patina. Simply put, the quality and craftsmanship found in this piano is seldom found today.

If desired, this piano can be equipped with the Pianomation player system, and can play by itself by streaming music live on an iPod, computer, iPad, etc.

The original matching bench is included.
