This magnificent upright piano designed by Gilbert Ogilvey and the Guild of Handicraft is for sale at Liberty & Co. in London. And the price for this gem made by John Broadwood & Sons of London in 1900? A trifling £16,000 (about $30,000).
The piano has a burled oak case with linenfold panel sides and is inlaid with ebony and mother-of-pearl in a chequered and floral design. Originally purchased by the Rev. Bertram of Cockermouth, the piano was exhibited at the Limars Hotel Exhibition of 1905. It was featured in an article on piano design in the Magazine of Art, 1901. And more than a hundred years later, it still has a beautiful sound!
