This Model Of Weber Rococo Style Grand Piano Was Featured In The Concert Scene In The Classic 1944 Movie “GASLIGHT” (Starring Ingrid Bergman, Angela Lansbury And Joseph Cotton)
The Weber Piano Company was one of the leading American piano companies of the 19th and 20th Centuries, and is noted for their high quality, expensive pianos. We have had a handful of these wonderful Weber Rococo Victorian grand pianos, and they are consistently some of the finest pianos we see come through our shop. These pianos are known as “Elephant Leg” pianos due to the heavily carved cabriole legs they have…they resemble highly decorated circus elephants when you look at them sideways.
According to its original 19th Century sales catalog, this piano was sold as the “American Style” grand piano, and sold for $1,000 (the cost of a house) in the 1880’s! These pianos were only afforded by very wealthy households of the Victorian era.
This piano is made of elaborately carved Brazilian Rosewood in the Rococo Style. It is being 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.
An original matching piano stool is included.
