DESCRIPTION

This is a large, full-size “Concert Grand” style Beckwith upright piano from the last part of the 19thCentury. Beckwith pianos were built by the famous Sears & Roebuck Company, and they were sold in their catalogs and larger retail stores. Beckwith pianos were of exceptional quality, and they are consistently some of the best pianos we see come through our shop.

Originally sold in Sears catalogs as the “Pompeiian” model, this piano is made of beautiful imported Honduran Mahogany wood and is of the massive Empire Revival style.  The soundboard and string length is equivalent to a full grand piano, hence the “Concert Grand” label that would have been originally located underneath the brand name.  These labels will be replaced with historical accuracy in restoration.

This piano will be restored to like-new condition, inside and out.  If desired, this piano can be equipped with the Pianomation player system, and can play by itself by streaming music live on an iPod, computer, iPad, etc. More than 10,000 song titles are available!

The original matching bench is included.
