Kranich & Bach Piano

See the video here!

One of the most innovative and advanced piano makers of the 19th Century was the Kranich & Bach Piano Company of New York. Kranich & Bach was established in 1864, and became well known for building extremely well-made and expensive pianos. They also became known for their lavish use of exotic woods and extravagant cabinet styles, as well as their superior tone and construction. Kranich & Bach was awarded many patents throughout the 19th and 20th Centuries, many of which were considered well ahead of their time.

The piano being auctioned is a unique, one of a kind instrument, and still remains in playing condition. The piano is being reconditioned by Taylor's Music Store, and because it is so unique, they will be offering it through an AUCTION BIDDING process.
