The final piano we are highlighting today is this elegant custom designed Louis XVI Style Pleyel Grand Piano built in 1915. This piano was built in Paris a century ago and was custom made to resemble a Medieval-era harpsichord. Because of its massive “larger than life” proportions and unique styling, this piano was likely commissioned for some grand European castle or forgotten Baronial mansion. From what we know, the piano remained in France until the late 20th Century when it was exported to the United States. Sitting tall and proud on 7 individual Louis XVI style legs, the case is adorned with hand-painted murals accented in distressed greens and yellows and trimmed in aged antique gold. This piano was obviously created to appear “larger than life”; the exterior cabinet was made longer, taller and deeper than the instrument within.
