Our range of unique, art cased pianos from the height of European piano making. Around the turn of the twentieth century a period of prosperity inspired an interest in culture and the arts. As the only source of music in the home, the domestic importance of the piano was at its peak. At this time the wealthy commissioned bespoke, art cased pianos as visible status symbols to stand as centrepieces in a room. Technical innovation of the instrument had reached its maturity prompting a flourish in custom made, luxurious cases. The breathtaking craftsmanship illustrated by these pianos reflect a climactic time in piano making and stand as monuments to the position of the piano in social history. By 1905, gramophone and disc recordings were available allowing the passive enjoyment of music.
 
We now offer a more flexible way to pay with interest free loans from Divido. Pay a 10% deposit on the full retail price of a piano now and spread the remainder over 6 or 12 months. Available subject to terms and conditions
