The Antique Piano Shop, a restorer and retailer of antique pianos, is pleased to announce the recent release of their latest restoration project, a Knabe & Gaehle Antique Custom Made Gothic Inspired Square Grand Piano that is available for purchase on a global basis.
The firm of Knabe & Gaehle was one of the most important manufacturers names in 19th Century American piano history. The firm only lasted from 1839 – 1854, but their short partnership made a substantial impression on the American piano industry, with pianos are still being built under the Knabe name to date.
This piano from the Antique Piano Shop is a custom-made, one of a kind instrument done in the Gothic Influenced style. The piano is made of Brazilian Rosewood and is adorned with extensively carved legs, lyre and moldings. The piano has an overall “castle” appearance that is perfectly suited to any decor that would could take advantage of the period influence from this piece of musical history.
The piano is being 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.
