This instrument won the coveted state prize: K.K. Staatspreis, and was handcrafted in Olmütz, Austria. It was manufactured before the adoption of design elements which later became commonplace such as, continuous rim, English style action, and modern damper system. This piano is a classic example of the great Viennese tradition of Bösendorfer and other great Austrian piano makers from years past. This is a historical period piece and is tuned to A 335

The woodworking exemplifies a tradition from a bygone era. The action is light and the tone is delicate with the leather covered felt hammers which is how pianos were manufactured at that time.

The condition of this piano is remarkable. It has undoubtedly been restored since the soundboard, plate, finish and other structural components are fresh. Yet, you can see by the candleholders built into the music rack that this piano reflects a different age from the intricate woodwork to the handcrafting of the action.

As time goes on, there will be fewer and fewer of these instruments around without spending a small fortune to remanufacture. This truly is a piece of history and a fascinating musical instrument!
