description

This lovely French Baroque style piano was built by the firm of Sebastian Erard of Paris in the French Baroque Style.  The French Baroque Style is one of the most beautiful and elaborate furniture styles ever produced. The style evolved during the reign of King Louis XV of France during the early 18th Century.  Considered a sign of wealth and extravagance, the French Baroque style has remained one of the most beautiful and formal styles in history. 

This instrument is made of mahogany wood trimmed with richly carved gold trimmed scalloping and moldings, features found only on highest grade instruments.  The legs, lyre and molding are extensively carved and gilded, giving the piano a stunning and formal appearance overall.  The original matching French Baroque piano bench is included.
