description

This wonderful square piano was built by Chickering of Boston during the Civil War. Chickering was the first piano manufacturer in America, established in 1823 and is said to have built the finest pianos in the world. Long before names such as Steinway, etc., Chickering held top awards world wide for piano design and manufacturing.

This piano is one of Chickering's classic Cabriole Leg style square grand pianos.  Once the most popular style of piano built in America, these instruments are nearly extinct today.  This instrument is made of Brazilian Rosewood, now an endangered species, and is elaborately carved in the Rococo Victorian style.  Note the elaborate carvings on the legs and music rack, as well as the ornate casting in the metal harp inside. The delicate "harp like" tone of these square pianos is quite lovely to hear.  An original matching stool is included.
