YEAR: 1875
FINISH: Brazilian Rosewood
STATUS: Currently Undergoing Restoration

In 1867, a group of disgruntled Steinway employees left the Steinway factory to start a new firm called the “Central Piano Forte Company”. These craftsmen were visionaries ahead of their time, and their collective goal was to build the finest pianos possible.
This lovely piano was built by The Central Piano Forte Company in about 1875. The piano is made of an exotic cut of fancy-grain Brazilian Rosewood and is extensively carved with Cabriole style legs and lyre. This piano was one of their highest-grade, most expensive models when new. It features four rounded corners and a finished back which allows the instrument to be set in the middle of a room; most square pianos had unfinished backs with squared off rear corners which were meant to be placed against a wall.
This instrument is being restored to like-new condition, inside and out. This will be a stunning piece after restoration. Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired. The original matching piano stool is included.
