Beautifully Carved Crown Victorian Upright Piano
“Crown” brand pianos were manufactured by the famous George P. Bent Piano & Organ Company from about 1889-1949. Crown built high quality, expensive pianos that were exceptionally well made.
This is one of the earliest Crown upright pianos we have had in our collection. It was originally sold as the flagship “Style M” upright piano, a model that sold new for nearly $1,000 in 1889; the cost of a small house!
This piano is done in a black lacquer finish and is of the carved Victorian style. The piano is being completely restored, inside and out, and will have the sound of a full grand piano post restoration. If desired, this piano can be equipped with the Pianomation player system, and can play by itself by streaming music live on an iPod, computer, iPad, etc. More than 10,000 song titles are available!
