Gorgeous in your B&B, or other antique setting!
This piano is a fine example of late 19th century piano building in America .
If you are looking for that rare, collectible piano, that has a great name and very unique qualities, then look no further! Why settle for any old piano when you can own this beautiful antique piece of history instead? You can rest assured it will be unique amongst all the other pianos out there, because it is a screwstringer piano, and the screwstringers were only made for a few years in the late 1800ís, and only by Mason & Hamlin, which makes this piano very rare indeed!
This beautiful piano is a Style 5, and the serial number is 4200 which means it was made in c.1888.
The screwstringer system was a top technological advancement for itís day. The tuning is extremely stable, and this piano is tuned at A=440 standard pitch! The original tuning key is still located inside the left end of the case.
So not only is this a gorgeous piece of history, but it is lovely to play as well.
This instrument is in very good condition inside and out. The key tops were replaced at some time and some very good action work was done as well. The dimensions are 52" tall, 62" wide and 25" deep. This piano has had very good care through out its life. The outside finish was very dark, probably ebonized, and has normal wear on the corners and edges, but still looks very nice. Some pianos of this vintage have had the decorative wood designs broken out and replaced with solid wood panels, but as you can see this one is in beautiful condition.
This piece would be gorgeous in a Bed and Breakfast, or other antique setting. Your guests and company will be intrigued, as there is included with this piano an original trade card from the era (copyright 1887) advertising this very model of piano, and the screwstringer design.
