DESCRIPTION

Lemuel Gilbert was an earlier name in Boston’s piano industry, retiring in 1863. This lovely piano was built by Lemuel Gilbert in about 1859, a time when more square pianos were being built in America than upright and grand pianos combined. This piano is made of dark finished Brazilian Rosewood and is of the Rococo Victorian style. Note the beautiful ornately cast harp inside the piano, further reflecting the quality and craftsmanship that Lemuel Gilbert put into building his instruments. The piano has been professionally restored, inside and out, and is like new in every detail.
This piano can be equipped with computerized player mechanisms if desired. An original matching piano stool is included.
