Stringent selection for a first-class tone. It’s the small, fine details that make this Art Nouveau instrument particularly charming. For example the hand-carved, black varnished maple wood Art Nouveau ornaments and the polished brass candle holders. Schimmel was able to repurchase the beautiful original instrument, which incidentally had been awarded a gold medal at a trade exhibition in 1913. Their new edition was modeled on this piano. The surface of the casing is worked and assembled by hand with contrasting walnut striped veneers. In addition to walnut veneer, the top door is also decorated with wood inlays incorporating ebony, Santos palisander and mother-of-pearl. This is not just an attractive piano, but also a fascinating piece of furniture!
