The Duchess brand name was built and sold by the illustrious Starr Piano Company of Richmond, Indiana. The Starr Piano Company built high-grade, well-made instruments that could rival the most prestigious brand names. In addition to the Duchess brand, the Starr Piano Company built pianos under the Trayser, Richmond and Remington names (as well as several others) until the 1950s. We have restored several antique Duchess and Starr pianos in our workshop over the years, and they are consistently very well made pianos.
Ephemera for this brand will be available soon.
