Erard Art cased Grand piano sells high at Christies London
Realized Price of over 200 000 Euros
Another great example of safe and secure investments in Art and music history

The Erard archives records this piano as:
Grand piano n°1, style Louis the XV, very rich, bois satiné, decorated with bronze doré (6 feet)
It was finished in April 1905 and sold for 11,400 francs on 5 October 1908 to Mme. Vve Th. Rivierre of 3 rue de Luynes, Paris. Marie Rivierre was the widow of Théodore Rivierre who founded the firm of Clouterie Rivierre, a leading French pre-war manufacturer of nails, pins and tacks. Following her husband's death in 1900, Marie Rivierre expanded the factory and entered new international markets to Argentina and Indochina. On the eve of the First World War, the factory employed four hundred people. She participated in the war effort, particularly by making shoe tacks for the army. She died at Chantilly in January 1937 aged 64 years.

This piano is in the distinctive fin de siècle style of high-rococo fused with Art Nouveau. This new style was formed by the artistic association of the ébénistes Joseph-Emmanuel Zwiener and François Linke with the sculptor Léon Messagé, aided by the proximity of Linke's workshop at 170 rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine to Zwiener's at 12 rue de la Roquette and Messagé's nearby studio at 40 rue Sedaine.

Messagé was inspired by Meissonnier's asymmetrical ornament of the early 18th century to produce rococco, flowing, designs for furniture and to sculpt gilt-bronze mounts of lively, high-relief allegorical figures linked by delicate organic frames. Messagé supplied designs to Linke from circa 1885 and had worked with or for Zwiener since probably 1880 or 1881, and is also recorded to have worked for the firm of Boudet. However it was at the Paris 1889 Exposition Universelle that Messagé achieved international recognition when he, and Zweiner, received a gold medal for an important serre-bijoux 

cabinet, subsequently sold Christie's, London, 17 March 2011, lot 409 (£623,650)...

Very special unique art cased square pianoforte made by Johann Christian Andrée Circa 1830s Berlin Germany

A unique entry into the world of strange and unique pianos.

Square pianoforte with an extraordinary case  with a story behind it. We can see this piano was not made in the form or styles of most...highly refined pieces of wood, colors and adapting serpents and crows into the design.  In the years of my research and history have I ever come across such a magnificent piece of furniture and musical instrument. We have posted a few photos as we go along in this new adventure in this pianofortes history...
