This Smaller Craftsman Style Upright Piano Is Idea For A Smaller Craftsman Style Home or Bungalow.
This lovely Craftsman style upright piano was built in 1916 by Mason & Risch, one of Canada’s premier manufacturers. The Arts & Crafts movement was winding down by about 1915 making this piano one of the later model Craftsman style pianos we have in our collection.
During the ‘teens and ‘twenties, the upright piano became slightly smaller and more streamlined, and this is one of the smallest Craftsman style upright pianos produced. Unlike earlier models, this piano appears a bit smaller and less massive while still maintaining its handsome Mission style appearance.
This piano is definitely a superior sounding instrument, reflecting Mason & Risch’s reputation for fine piano building. The beautiful Mission style cabinet is made of stunning quarter sawn oak wood with a lovely aged patina.
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.
An authentic matching piano bench is included.
Note: As founder of The Antique Piano Shop, I have personally collected Mission / Arts & Crafts style pianos for over 25 years. I have a great passion for anything Mission / Arts & Crafts, including Craftsman homes, furniture, and accessories. If you are a true Arts & Crafts enthusiast, you will appreciate how impossible it is to find true Arts & Crafts / Mission style pianos in today’s market. Nearly three decades of collecting and preserving these “impossible to find” instruments has allowed me the opportunity to present the largest collection of true Mission / Arts & Crafts style instruments anywhere in the world.
We are proud to offer the serious enthusiast the option of adding an authentic period instrument for their Craftsman home.
