The Ivers & Pond Piano Company was one of the largest and most successful piano manufacturers in Boston
Ivers & Pond was one of the largest and most successful piano manufacturers in Boston. Pianos were built under the Ivers & Pond brand name for well over a century! This beautiful piano was built by The Ivers & Pond Piano Company in 1886, a time when American manufacturers were producing more square pianos than uprights and grand pianos combined.
The cabinet is made of beautifully carved Brazilian Rosewood and is of the Rococo Victorian style. This piano was one of the larger, higher grade square piano models offered by Ivers & Pond. It features a full 88-note keyboard when most square pianos were built with 85 notes. The back of the piano is also built to be finished like the front of the piano which allows the instrument to sit in the middle of a room rather than against a wall, if desired.
This piano will be restored inside and out with a historical perspective in mind. If desired, this piano can be equipped with the Pianomation player system, and can play by itself by streaming music live from any smart device. Thousands of song titles are available.
