Superb Baby Grand Piano with Painted Scenes by Sohmer, NY(224 views)
Description: This is a very nice hand-painted baby grand piano made by Sohmer, NY. From a Boca Raton Florida estate. Its a great looking piano. The paintwork is very good, has wear in some parts. It plays well, but I would say needs tuning once moved, also has the three brass pedals. Sohmer was one of the last piano builders to hand-make pianos in America. This is a custom-made, one of a kind piano finished in a superbly and aged in the Vernis Martin color. French inspired painting and was built in 1930, and always had amazing tune quality. They had exceptionally high quality and workmanship, and built pianos for well over a century. Who ever would have picked this piano out among all others at the Sohmer factory, then they would have found a special artist through Sohmer's art department to finish the piano in this hand-painted finish to match the room it would go. The whole piano has detailed hand-painted scenes of lovers, mistrals, and floral bouquets set a French scene. Some had French style legs, this one sits on square tapered legs also had painted, with heavy duty brass castors to the bottom. The piano has some very small touch up to the outside of the piano but looks fine, and also one key has a small chip on the front. You may also find pianos very similar to these in a piano antique store but rare to find one hand-painted like this one. Measures: 5ft 4 inches square. Some of these pianos you will find are in excess of $30,000.
