DESCRIPTION

This lovely square piano was built by Chickering of Boston in 1881, making this one of their later models. Chickering was the first piano manufacturer in America, established in 1823 and is said to have built the finest pianos in the world. Long before names such as Steinway, etc., Chickering held top awards worldwide for piano design and manufacturing.
This piano has been internally restored and refinished to like new condition. Note the elaborate carvings on the legs and music rack, as well as the ornate casting in the metal harp inside. The delicate “harp like” tone of these square pianos is a bit different from the way modern pianos sound – the videos shown here will allow the listener to better understand how lovely these pianos really do sound after professional restoration.
Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired. An original matching stool is included, and can be uplostered to suit the buyer’s decor.
