This lovely piano was built by the famous firm of Kranich & Bach in 1911. A Louis XV baby grand piano like this would have cost over $1,000 new in the early 20th Century, a luxury only a wealthy few could afford! The fact that someone invested that kind of money for this piano when it was new makes this instrument a bit special.

Kranich & Bach built high quality, expensive pianos from about of the few American piano manufacturers to survive well over a century. Kranich & Bach has a bit of a unique design to its piano action, but after proper restoration they are superb instruments with a superior tone and touch. When new, these pianos known to be exceedingly well made and quite expensive - much more expensive than most brands. Despite their high cost when new, Kranich & Bach pianos were very popular throughout the 20th Century. They are consistently some of the most beautiful and satisfying instruments we see come through our shop today.
