Chickering is known for building some of the finest pianos in American history
This handsome square piano was built by Chickering of Boston circa 1869, a time when more square pianos were being produced in America than grand and upright pianos combined! Chickering was the first piano manufacturer in America, established in 1823 and is said to have built the finest pianos in the world. Long before names such as Steinway, etc., Chickering held top awards worldwide for piano design and manufacturing.
This piano is made in the Rococo Victorian carved style and is made of a lighter cut of Brazilian Rosewood. It is being internally restored and refinished to like new condition. The delicate "harp like" tone of these square pianos is truly one of the loveliest sounds one can experience.
A matching stool is included. Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired.
