What if we all looked this good at 51!?
This Knight piano is not only a fantastic find because they rarely surface in the US, but also because this one appears to have been preserved in a vacuum. Knights were the primary premium piano brand of Great Britain for most of the 20th century and were the only pianos allowed to share the showroom at Steinway Hall in London.
This particular instrument has a unique style and finish that is simply not found in pianos anymore. The all-hardwood case features “butterfly” veneers – a process by which veneers are split and laid out symmetrically, as seen in this image. It’s even more rare for this theme to continue throughout each piece on the piano. It’s truly spectacular workmanship that was a British trademark for centuries.
Beyond that, Knights are beautifully-designed Instruments, with fantastic tone and touch. Despite Cordogan’s seeing thousands of pianos each year, we can still count on one hand how many times we have had a Knight piano in the past 30 years.
If you’re seeking a unique performance piano, we have your Knight in shining walnut.
