Very Rare McHugh Influenced Style Emerson Mission Craftsman/Arts & Crafts Style Upright Piano
The Emerson Piano Company was one of Boston's premier piano builders. Their instruments were known to be of the best quality and highest craftsmanship in both aesthetics and musical quality.
This lovely piano is an exceedingly rare example of the McHugh influenced Mission style (note the unusually designed "X" design in the pegged front legs). What makes this piano a bit unusual is that it appears that the legs are indeed real mortise and tenon with actual pegs holding them together. The piano is made of lovely quarter sawn oak wood in a fumed oak finish. Note the unusual Mission style hardware (hinges, brackets, etc) which nicely compliment this beautiful Arts & Crafts style design. Mission/Craftsman style pianos of this caliber are exceedingly rare in today's market, and they are very desirable as a result.
This piano is being restored to like-new condition, inside and out. Not only will it be a stunning piece of period Mission furniture, but it has a superior tone quality and touch, making it a superior quality musical instrument.
A matching bench is included. Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired.
