DESCRIPTION

This beautiful player piano is a “One Man Band” designed to play one song for a quarter.  Originally known as a “Nickelodeon” player piano, or “Orchestrion”, these pianos were often found in saloons, restaurants and dance halls.  This piano has been customized with beautiful new stained glass panels and instruments.  Bass and snare drums, cymbals, and even a xylophone come alive and accompany the piano!

 

The instrument is made of beautiful book-matched walnut wood and is of the Empire Revival style.  This piano will be restored to like-new condition, inside and out.  Each music roll plays 10 – 15 songs each, and music rolls are readily available.

A matching piano stool is included.
