The Florey Brothers Piano Company was established in Washington, NJ in 1909. Florey Brothers was unique among other manufacturers because they only built small grand pianos known as the “Florey Grand”. While many firms put better quality and craftsmanship in their larger, more expensive pianos, Florey Brothers’ strategy was to produce the finest and best sounding small grand pianos in the industry. Our archives do mention that Florey Brothers built a limited number of organs in addition to the Florey Grand, but there is no indication the firm ever built upright pianos or large grand pianos.
Florey Brothers built pianos for two decades, going out of business with the onset of the Great Depression. These instruments are rarely encountered today, indicating the firm built pianos in modest numbers.
