Beautiful Art Case Rosewood American Chickering 9'concert grand piano. Fully restored both inside and out. Tunes to the current 440A orchestra tuning. A must for a large drawing room. $45,000. PLAYS GREAT. This Chickering is the same year and model that was awarded the gold medal (best piano in the world) at the Paris Exposition of 1867. At 8'4" in length, this concert grand was the greatest piano of its day, and was produced to serve the great concert pianists of the world. This piano is very rare since it was Chickering's limited edition concert grand, prepared for the 1867 world piano show Steinways of the 1860s and 1870s had only 85 keys and the old-style square grand type action. In addition, few were made with the fully scalloped case. This piano was truly the finest, sporting a full 88 keys and a modern style repetition action. In addition, Chickering craftsmen carved the most beautiful, symmetrical case we have ever seen on any concert grand piano. It corresponds with the Victorian era yet not in an overbearing style.
