This Model Of Weber Rococo Style Parlor Grand Piano Is One Of The Most Elaborate, Expensive Parlor Grand Pianos Produced In The 19th Century.
The Weber Piano Company was one of the leading American piano companies of the 19th and 20th Centuries. The firm was known for building high quality, well made pianos for both private homes and the concert stage.
This lovely Rococo piano was one of Weber’s most elaborate designs. According to its original 19th Century sales catalog (see photos), this piano was sold as the “American Style” grand piano, and sold for $1,000 in the 1880s! The instrument is 6’4” long and is made of elaborately carved Brazilian Rosewood. 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.
This piano is being restored to like new condition, inside and out. Computerized player mechanisms can be installed if desired. An original matching stool is included.
