DESCRIPTION

This stunning Knabe Parlor Grand Piano is one of the earliest “contemporary” designs, right as the carved Victorian pianos were going out of fashion in favor of cleaner, simpler lines. This piano is made of real mahogany wood, finished with a hand rubbed satin lacquer finish. It is of the Traditional Contemporary style. This piano has been rebuilt & refinished, and is in excellent condition. A new quality grand piano of similar size such as a Steinway or Yamaha would easily cost twice as much as this piano. This piano comes with a matching bench, and can be fitted with a computerized player mechanism if desired.
