DESCRIPTION

This is one of the finest examples of oak carved Eastlake Victorian design we have ever seen in a piano. This piano was built by the Wegman Piano Company of NY in about 1893. Wegman built high quality, expensive pianos from 1882-1956. This piano is made of stunning quarter sawn oak, and has elegant carved panels, legs, and trusses. Oak Victorian pianos are less common than mahogany or rosewood because the darker finishes were more popular at the time. Since oak was a common domestic wood, it was not considered to be exotic and was rarely used for piano cabinets until the ‘teens and ‘twenties, making it rare and desirable on carved Victorian style pianos like this one. This piano has a perfect ivory keyboard, and even prior to restoration has a deep, rich tone. This piano comes with a matching period piano stool, and can be equipped with computerized player mechanisms if desired.
