PIANO: Mason & Hamlin, 41.5” Console & matching bench, serial # 76975
Finish: French Provincial Cherry with carved legs in lacquer–rubbed to a high gloss.
Description: Made in East Rochester, NY in mid-1973, this exquisite console is a designer piece that is quite unusual and rare. This features highly figured select cherry cabinet with the hand carved cabriole french front legs and and elaborate case replete with sound escapement behind music rack and decorative moldings throughout. This piano has a high polish finish that is in remarkably fine condition and was hardly used. The tone on this piano is huge for its size…..much like the Steinway consoles. Contributing to that tone is the exclusive Mason & Hamlin tension resonator and the full perimeter plate that stabilizes the tension and insures crown in the soundboard. The action has been completely reconditioned, regulated to concert specification and hammers voiced. A piano of this quality would cost in excess of $20,000 new on sale! Incredible value no longer available in this day and age!! This is another gem!
