Beautiful Kimball Victorian Piano In Quarter Sawn Oak Cabinet
This lovely piano was built by the famous W.W. Kimball Piano Company of Chicago in 1902. According to the original sales catalog (see photos), this piano was sold as the “Style 8” in quarter sawn oak wood. Note the beautifully carved leaves and acorns that adorn the front panel; quarter sawn oak Victorian pianos are less common than mahogany or rosewood because the darker finishes were more popular at the time. Since oak was a common domestic wood, it was not considered to be exotic and was rarely used for piano cabinets, making it rare and desirable today.
This piano will be restored to like-new condition, both inside and out. The instrument is a full size “upright grand” with quite an impressive tone quality. 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.
