description

Established in 1823, Chickering was the first piano manufacturer in American History.  Chickering was known for building some of the finest pianos in the world.

This piano was built prior to the Civil War, and it is a bit smaller than the typical square grand piano. The piano is made of Brazilian Rosewood and is of the Empire Revival style. These early pianos have a very sweet and delicate tone quality, making them ideal for playing period music of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, etc. Although the piano is an earlier model, it does have typical full working damper pedal and soft pedals. This is a rare piece of America's musical history, and is being restored to like-new condition, inside and out.
