Truly stunning instrument !!!! sounds as good as it looks NO DEFECTS / NO CRACKS ANYWHERE
100% ORIGINAL A MIRACLE OF A SURVIVOR .
ONLY 3 OF THESE EXTREMELY RARE OLIVE TREE VENEER KNABE WERE EVER MADE, ONE WAS DISPLAYED AT THE UNIVERSAL EXPO IN 1895, 1 WAS SOLD TO OF OF THE MARX BROTHER THIS IS THE LAST ONE…
As you can see from the photos this piano has a very unique finish which I
have been told is Olivewood and it is absolutely stunning. I’ve been unable
to confirm it but family history says this piano was one of 3 that were made
for the world’s fair around the turn of the century. The piano has been in
my family for well over 50 years and was my father’s most prized possession.
The serial number is 41548 which indicates it was manufactured in 1893. The
piano is 6 feet long.
You can find the piano listed as the “STYLE 4” in the 1870 KNABE CATALOG on
page 9. http://www.antiquepianoshop.com/online-museum/knabe/
