Very Rare Mataulchek Baby Grand Piano, built in Vienna during the “Golden Age” of European piano building
Out of stock
This is a rare Antique Mataulchek Baby Grand Piano built in Vienna during the “Golden Age” of European piano building.
There is very little information known about Mataulcheck, but we do know that it was a smaller, family owned firm in Vienna, Austria during the late 19th and early 20th Century period. These small family owned firms produced some of the finest instruments in European history, as nothing but the best would be fitting to display the name of its maker. It is speculated that Mataulchek was likely a close relative of the American “Mathushek” piano manufacturer, but we have yet to find any concrete evidence to support this theory.
This instrument is very unique because it is only 5’3″ long, yet it was built in the last part of the 19th Century! These small baby grand pianos were not popular in American until well after 1915. It is very difficult to find a Victorian style grand piano under 6 feet long, making this instrument very desirable to someone who wants the 19th Century look but only has space for a smaller instrument.
This piano is made of a richly-figured exotic walnut wood and is of the Empire Victorian style. The piano is being completely restored, inside and out, bringing it back to its original “new” condition while maintaining as much of its antique integrity as possible.
