Joseph P. Hale was often credited as “The Father Of The Commercial Piano”.
J.P. Hale was often referred to as the “father of the commercial piano”. A brilliant businessman, Hale’s innovations in manufacturing and distributing made his pianos affordable and available to the public, much like Henry Ford decades later with the automobile.
This beautiful piano was built by J. P. Hale in 1872. This piano is made of exquisite Brazilian Rosewood and is of the Rococo Victorian style. Note the beautifully carved legs, lyre and music rack. The piano will be restored to like-new condition, inside and out, all done 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 on an iPod, computer, iPad, etc. Thousands of song titles are available.
An antique matching piano bench is included.
