Chickering was the first piano manufacturer in America. Chickering has long been known having built some of the finest instruments in American history!
This beautiful piano is a classic “Quarter Grand” model baby grand piano, one of Chickering’s most successful models during the early 20th Century period. The “Quarter Grand” model was designed as a smaller size grand piano with modest dimensions. Although it has a full 88 note keyboard and is a full-size piano in every way, the “Quarter Grand” has narrow dimensions and an overall petite appearance. These pianos are an average of 3 to 5 inches narrower than conventional baby grand pianos, but their unique scale design creates a tone quality that is comparable to much larger instruments.
This instrument is made of beautiful walnut wood and is of the carved Sharaton style. Note the beautiful carved legs and music rack. This piano be restored to perfection, inside and out, and will rival the tone and touch of better quality grand pianos built today.
Computerized player mechanisms can be installed in this piano if desired, allowing the piano to play wirelessly from an iPad, computer or smartphone. Thousands of song titles are available!
