One of the oldest names in the American piano world.

These pianos, player-pianos and grands are manufactured by a division of the Goldsmith Piano Co. of Chicago, an industry of utmost responsibility. The Smith & Nixon Piano Company was one of Cincinnati's premier piano manufacturers during the late 19th and early 20th century. Thus, the nameplate showing both Cincinnati and Chicago.

Smith & Nixon owned and controlled a handful of other makers including Ebersole and Goldsmith Piano Companies. Ebersole and Goldsmith were marketed as affordable alternatives to the costlier Smith & Nixon brand instruments. Smith & Nixon brand pianos were sold as the firm's top of the line, highest grade instruments. Because of their high prices, they were only built in modest numbers and are a bit rare today. The firm was out of business by 1931 due to The Great Depression. There are only a handful of Smith & Nixon instruments left and are of consistently superior quality.

Smith & Nixon even made a Abraham Lincoln souvenir piano with Lincoln carved in the front panel for the Columbian Exhibition in 1895.

Smith & Nixon pianos have held a place very high in the esteem of discriminating musical people and, under present conditions, their position will be maintained.

Full set of 52 real keys, not 50 keys as some were

Double leg for stability, quality and prestige

Restrung and tuned; no work needed

Not the original bench, but works with the piano and included in sale.

Bench is 42" long, 18" tall and 14" wide

Piano is 54 1/2" Wide, 64" long, 38" tall when closed

Best estimate is that this piano was produced in 1902 or 1903. Over 100 years old and in excellent working condition. The wood is beautiful too with only one noticeable mark towards the back.

Sacrificing, giving away to any piano lover.

Mod edit: Name, email and phone number removed.(please read the for sale forum rules)

mumbojumbo
The serial number and description seems to have been lifted from this ad:
https://www.pianomart.com/buy-a-piano/ad.php?ad_id=12481


Since when did a baby grand become an upright?


I was wondering the same thing about the baby/upright contradiction. Strange.
