Wurlitzer “Butterfly” Baby Grand Piano

About

4’1” symetrical baby grand piano with matching bench. Wood case and frame, fitted with a cast iron plate, birch ply pinblock and steel tuning pins with steel and copper wound strings. Action has a steel frame with maple parts and wool felt hammers, keyboard is wood with pine keys covered with plastic. Bench is wood with an upholstered top. Absolutely the last word in Art Deco furniture, the Wurlitzer “Butterfly” is an extremely rare piano. This one has just been completely rebuilt by a well-known New York area rebuilder who specializes in period instruments. The original soundboard has been repaired and the pinblock, tuning pins and strings replaced. The action has been rebuilt with custom-made Abel hammers and new dampers, and the keys have been recovered in immaculate new plastic. This is a working piano and actually sounds terrific, especially considering its tiny [for a piano]size. The case has been professionally refinished in hand-rubbed ebony satin lacquer, which is the Classic high end “Steinway finish” of the 1930s. It has extraordinary Deco details, with unique carved string cover panels. A “one-off.”
