DESCRIPTION

The Weber Piano Company was one of the leading American piano companies of the 19th and 20th Centuries, and are noted for their high quality, expensive pianos. We have had a handful of these wonderful Weber Rococo Victorian grand pianos, and they are consistently some of the finest pianos we see come through our shop. According to its original 19th Century sales catalog, this piano sold for $1,200 (the cost of a house) in the 1880’s! It is 7’3″ long and is made of elaborately carved Brazilian Rosewood. These pianos are known as “Elephant Leg” pianos due to the heavily carved cabriole legs they have…they resemble highly decorated circus elephants when you look at them sideways. This piano model was very popular on the 19th Century concert stage in both America and Europe, and it will be a substantial musical instrument after restoration. Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired. An original matching stool is included.

NOTE: These photos show the piano prior to restoration, and the old lacquer finish has turned black and scaly. The last photo is of an example of the same model piano shown after restoration. This piano is made of beautiful rosewood and can be finished as light or as dark in red or brown hues as desired. It can also be finished in black lacquer if requested.
