Fabulous and rare Art Cased upright piano made by Pleyel Paris.
This is the first pianino we have seen of this style and second piano we have come across using the rare Amaranth wood or purple heart wood.
This wood was highly sought after being used in most smaller musical instruments such as guitars.
Further details of the pianos designs are highlighted by ebony inlay.
Both sides of the piano have Bronzed gold gilt Medusa and center panel decorated as well with brass and régule motifs.
