Queen Mary's Bluthner grand piano for sale with an Art Nouveau inlaid, rosewood case and glass music desk. Cabinet decorated with Empire style, gilt mounts. Piano belonged to Queen Mary at Malborough House

Click on image to zoom

Unique, 1899 Bluthner grand piano with a rosewood case. Cabinet decorated with Art Nouveau and Empire style elements. It was showcased at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle. Piano originally the property of Queen Mary, residing at the Ballroom in Malborough House. It was sold in 1936 to Major Maconochie in Bath. This piano is in great original condition having only had two previous owners. A rare opportunity to acquire a former royal piano.

The piano cheek is inlaid with an Art Nouveau design featuring a stylised female head surrounded by whiplash lines and foliage. Columnar, Empire style gilt mounts stand each side of the inlay. Napoleonic emblems of stars, palmettes and foliage feature here. Female heads with flowing tresses and floral headbands in gilt metal sit atop each cheek.
The butterfly shaped, music desk is made from bevelled glass and an intricate metal filigree design. A central circular tree of life is surrounded by a laurel leaf wreath. Whiplash lines and stylised foliage and flowers complete the design.
The three piano legs are heavily carved, yet appear understated due to minimal use of gilt filigree banding. Each leg is a tapered, four-sided baluster shape, carved with sunflowers and foliage. The two-pedal lyre has three central spindles accented with gilt acanthus and palms at either end. Two gilt lions feet frame the cabriole lyre.
The piano lid is attached with two large ornate, brass hinges in a flowing intertwined design with symmetrical foliar motifs.
The front panel features gilt, Empire mount motifs. Bees fly around flowers, between two winged lions couchant. Scrolling whiplash lines lead to and outcrop of poppies, foliage more bees and thin trailing ribbons.
The piano fall is inlaid with a symmetrical Art Nouveau design of stylised foliage and whiplash lines in coloured woods. The piano lid is also inlaid with an Art Nouveau style border in a stylised rinceau of interlocking foliage and flowers in coloured woods.
The piano has a specially cast, ornate, burnished gilt frame.
