Frederick Mathushek was one of the most celebrated innovators in American piano history. His designs and patents changed piano building forever, and his instruments, although rare, are considered some of the finest pianos ever built.
This piano was built by the famous Mathushek Piano Company of New Haven, CT at the height of the Victorian era. Mathushek was known for building exceptionally high quality, expensive pianos…he was one of the finest innovators of his time. This piano is made of beautifully carved Circassian Walnut wood which will be just stunning after restoration. Note the heavily carved legs, molding, grills, etc. You simply can’t get craftsmanship like this in pianos built today!
This piano will be restored to like-new condition, inside and out. After restoration, it will rival the tone and touch of the finest new upright piano available on today’s market. If desired, this piano can be equipped with the Pianomation player system, and can play by itself by streaming music live on an iPod, computer, iPad, etc. More than 10,000 song titles are available!
The original matching piano stool is included.
