description

Built by the Mathushek Piano Company of New Haven, CT, this model is known as the "Medium" Square Grand Piano.  Mathushek produced three sizes of square pianos.  The "Colibri" was the smallest, followed by the "Medium", and the largest size was the "Orchestral".  Surviving instruments seem to indicate that the "Medium" model was built in far fewer numbers than the "Colibri" and the "Orchestral", making the "Medium" model quite rare today.

Mathushek was known for getting the largest tone out of the smallest space, and the tone quality of their square pianos is very impressive.  This lovely instrument is made of Brazilian Rosewood and is of the Rococo Victorian style.  Note the heavily carved scalloping around the edges of the case, as well as an ornate grilled music rack.

This piano is being restored to like new condition, inside and out.  Computerized player mechainsms can be installed if desired.
