description

This little piano was known as the “Butterfly Grand” built by the famous Rudolph Wurlitzer Piano & Organ Company in about 1938. This piano has 73 notes rather than 88 notes, but is otherwise a normal, conventional piano in every way. Wurlitzer built only a limited number of these little pianos during the ”˜30s and ”˜40s era. They were designed for smaller homes and apartments of the era, making them ideal for people with limited space for a baby grand. Sadly, there are very few of these little pianos left in existence today. They are very rare and desirable among collectors and musicians alike. This piano is tuned to standard concert pitch, and can be used as a normal piano for daily use. It has an impressive tone for its small size!
