Leonard & Company was a division of the large Lester Piano Company of Philadelphia. Leonard & Company built upright pianos and player pianos until 1925. In 1925, the firm introduced the first Leonard Baby Grand Piano which measured 4 feet, 11 inches long. These baby grand pianos were quite successful and they continued to be produced for several years.
During the ‘teens and ‘twenties era, Leonard & Company enjoyed a reputation for building very durable, well made pianos. After 1930, a line of spinet pianos was introduced to the Leonard line of instruments which replaced their full-sized upright pianos. The Great Depression took its toll on the firm, and Leonard & Company was discontinued in 1937.
