This handsome piano is a lovely example of high turn-of-the-century Edwardian style. It has a large and impressive appearance, yet its small size makes it ideal for a smaller space.
This is a lovely parlor grand piano built by Hardman, Peck & Co. right after the turn of the 20th Century. This piano is made of elegantly carved mahogany wood and is of the Edwardian style. The Edwardian period (named for the reign of King Edward VII) was a transitional period that stretched from the end of the 19thCentury until the first quarter of the 20thCentury. This period saw design move away from the elaborately carved Victorian style to the more stream-lined “modern” styles of the 20thCentury. This is why your piano has such a simple elegant look and carved details without being “too much”.
This piano is a bit unusual in that the back of the piano is just a little wider than most, making the soundboard area of the piano larger and more resonant. This piano is also unusual in that it is only 5'8" long...most pianos from this era were generally 6 feet long or longer. It will be restored to perfection, and has all the indications of being a superb musical instrument.
This piano can be equipped with computerized player mechanisms if desired. An original matching stool is included.
