The Christman Piano Company was located at East 137th Street in New York City. The firm was originally established by Peter Christman in 1885, and was incorporated in 1911 by his sons. Christman was known for building high grade, expensive pianos. Their pianos were often very elaborate and boasted lavish, exotic woods. In addition to Christman pianos, the firm built pianos under the names of Lockhart, Schuler and Worthington.
Due to the fact that Christman pianos were so expensive when new, they were sold in relatively modest numbers. Surviving Christman pianos that come through our restoration shop are of consistently high quality and craftsmanship. Instruments by Christman are not commonly encountered today.
