by Schweighofer, 1845

This rare example of Schweighofer’s superb early work justifies the renown of this Viennese house. Flawlessly bookmatched, figured walnut case with period square tail, simple music desk and complete set of original ivory keys. An amazing fall board is veneered to give the impression of peering feline eyes. The wood work on this instrument is simply astounding. Requires restoration. The perfect piano for the serious performance practice player and historian.
