This piano is a prime example of the beautiful craftsmanship that was produced by the renowned Knabe Piano Company during the 19th Century. It is made of beautifully carved rosewood, and has heavily carved cabriole legs and carved pedal lyre. This is one of the last models of the Rococo cabriole leg style Victorian grand piano built by Knabe, as the style was discontinued before the turn-of-the-century. Note the unusual wide square back case - this allows for a larger soundboard and longer strings for improved tone quality. The tone of this piano is unmatched by today's instruments, and it is about half the price of a new piano of similar size. It comes with an original matching stool, and can be equipped with a computerized player mechanism if desired.
