This lovely instrument is a large late model Hallet & Davis square grand piano built in 1879. The piano is made of beautiful Brazilian Rosewood and is of the Rococo Victorian style. Note the beautifully carved legs and moldings. This piano boasts a full 88-note keyboard which indicates this was a “top of the line” instrument in its day. These instruments sold new for as much as $1,000 in the 19thCentury – the cost of a small house.
