Made of endangered Brazilian Rosewood, this piano is made in the stately Empire Revival style. Note the octagon legs and clean, simple lines, all hallmarks of this classic style. The instrument is being restored to like-new condition inside and out. It has a lovely “harp-like” fortepiano sound heard on the instruments used in the moves like “Pride & Prejudice” and “Cold Mountain”.
Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired.
