PIANO: Wurlitzer, 4’10” Art Case, “Arabian Nights”, Baby Grand & Matching Bench, serial # 113491
Finish: American Walnut with Tiger Maple/Birdseye Maple Panels in Satin Lacquer Finish.
Description: Famous for their cabinets andbeing the #1 American home piano, Wurlitzer has been the best selling American piano through the late 80’s. This piano, made in DeKalb, Illinois, in 1930, is as example of Wurlitzer’s pre-WWII fascination with unique cabinet designs. This Art Case Grand, dubbed the “Arabian Nights” model, harkens back to the Moorish cabinet style that was popular and very exotic prior to WWII. This piano was purchased by the 2nd owner, after it had been completely rebuilt in Atlanta, GA. It receivednew pinblock, strings, dampers, shimmed soundboard, reconditioned action, new pearlized keytops and refinishing. The original piano had ivory which came off prior to rebuilding so the rebuilder took extra care to cover the keys with very special, rare pearlized material. We reconditioned this piano to bring it to a much higher level of performance than it ever had before. A very rare find !!!
