This beautiful piano was built by the prominent Bush & Gerts Piano Company of Chicago in 1902. Bush & Gerts built very expensive, high quality pianos from 1885 until 1942. This piano is one of the most elaborate upright piano models built by Bush & Gerts – it was considered the highest grade and would have been very expensive when new. Pianos like this would have cost the equivalent of a small house of the era! It boasts beautifully carved inset panels and elaborate moldings around the case, all made in the finest mottled burl walnut wood. The tone quality of this piano is tremendous, which isn’t surprising for a Bush & Gerts instrument. An original matching stool is included. This piano can be fitted with a computerized player mechanism if desired.
