YEAR: 1885
FINISH: Brazilian Rosewood
STATUS: Pending Restoration

Sterling built high quality, expensive pianos in Derby, Connecticut from 1866-1960, one of the few American piano manufacturers to survive through the Great Depression without being absorbed into a larger corporation.

This piano was built in 1885 and is made in the Eastlake Victorian style.  The instrument is made of beautiful Brazilian Rosewood, now an endangered species, under the old dark finish.  The piano will be quite beautiful after restoration.   The piano has a full, rich tone that is typical of the larger upright pianos.

This piano will be restored to like-new condition, inside and out.  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. Thousands of song titles are available.
