description

Turn-Of-The-Century America was a period of lavish lifestyles, excessive luxury and prosperity. Several piano manufacturers specialized in creating custom, one-of-a-kind pianos on special order for wealthier clients in order to match their décor – often in historical and period furniture styles.

This beautiful vintage Weber baby grand piano has been restored and custom painted in the Country-French style with ivory, gold, gray and brown accents. The instrument is adorned with scenes of musicians playing instruments, angels, cherubs and wheat sheaves all depicted in amazing detail and accuracy!

The elegantly carved Louis XV style cabinet is exquisitely carved in superb detail, giving an overall formal and elegant appearance like something one would see on the set of “The Great Gatsby”. Nearly every square inch of this instrument is covered in breathtaking custom painted detail! It is just stunning to see in person. Not only is this a breathtakingly beautiful piece aesthetically; the piano has been internally restored to like new condition and is an instrument of the finest sound quality.

This piano has been restored to like new condition, inside and out. 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 original matching piano bench is included.
