Baby Grand Piano

Wurlitzer Butterfly Baby Grand Piano Art Deco Streamline Design

Item #1884

This 1937 Streamline Art Deco Butterfly Wurlitzer Baby Grand Piano is a very rare find. In nice original finish and remarkable condition, we have also made all the adjustments to ensure that the next owner will have an instrument worthy of playing for many years to come . I have been waiting for one of these for over five years and now the wait is over!

Of all the Wurlitzer Butterfly Pianos I have seen, this model has the best detailing. It has the unique winged shape and is one of the most sought after Art Deco innovations in piano design. The design of the wood that backs the pedals has great art deco detail. The music stand mimics the streamline banding around the case. The walnut is beautiful, warm and deeply grained.. Although no one really knows exactly how many of these were made the number is thought to be approximately 75 that were manufactured in 1937. The “Butterfly” was made in at least two different sizes including a 73 version in a Duncan Phyfe, Louis XV or Art Deco style case. The piano offered here is the most professional version of this piano, a standard 88 key model which makes it the most valuable.

An expert technician has completely gone through the action, tightened all screws, adjusted all hammers, cleaned and tuned it, spending considerable time and expertise.

The case and finish are original and although there are some light nicks here and there, there is nothing too dramatic or problematic. This piano sounds great. and plays well. This piano is tuned to standard concert pitch, and can be used as a normal piano for daily use. It has impressive volume and tone, considering its size. The piano comes from the original owner's children who have owned it for the life of the piano. There are no cracks in the sound board and all of the parts are intact including the rare wood baffles that cover the inside of the butterfly top,all with original finish . The original keys have some slight chipping on the edges. The piano will be sold with an new Yamaha piano bench, in a medium brown wood finish.

There are very few of these pianos left in existence today. They are rare and desirable among collectors and musicians alike. Developed in a time of great innovation in art, design and music the Butterfly Piano by Rudolph Wurlitzer is an example of a perfect piece of both form and function.

Art Deco piano

French Art Deco piano by Gaveau in the manner of Dominique circa 1933

Item #1883

Graceful two toned mahogany and maple cabinet raised on streamline supports in the most sophisticated 30's French high style. Also accented by an unusual wood and brass lyre. Gaveau pianos made some of the finest art deco art-case pianos known. This exceptional example is in extremely fine original condition, having never been rebuilt or refinished, and appears nearly new in many respects. The original strings are in excellent condition as is the action with all original components. The original soundboard is flawless with no cracks, and the piano plays beautifully with a very responsive action and a typical French tone which is delicate yet powerful, belying the piano’s compact size. The cabinet with its exotic woods still presents its original 1938 finish which has just been professionally French polished and has a beauty and depth not seen in refinished examples.

The piano’s ownership history is equally remarkable. It was purchased new in Paris in 1938 by the Litton family and moved to their apartment on rue Cognacq-Jay near the pont de l’Alma, where it joined a large collection of the most fashionable Art Deco furniture. The Littons left France for New York in 1939 and settled in a large apartment on the Upper West Side bringing the furniture and piano along. The Littons were part of a circle of European artists and intellectuals and hosted parties where the elegant Gaveau was played by the likes of Nadia Reisenberg and Arthur Rubenstein. Their son George Litton remembers these parties fondly. After his father’s passing in the 1950s his mother moved to a smaller apartment and sold most of the Art Deco pieces but loved the piano and kept it with her.

The next fascinating chapter of the piano’s story began when George started his family and the piano was played by his son Andrew, a very promising young musician in the mid 1960s. Andrew’s hard work at the piano paid good rewards as he is today one of the most celebrated conductors and pianists of his generation, currently holding the positions of Music Director of Norway’s Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Artistic Director of the Minnesota Orchestra’s Sommerfest, Conductor Laureate of Britain’s Bournemouth Symphony, and Music Director of the Colorado Symphony. He guest conducts the world’s leading orchestras and opera companies and has a discography of over 120 recordings with awards including America’s Grammy, France’s Diapason d’Or, and many British and other honors.

You can see a similar design of this piano pictured in photos from the French luxury liner Normandie. It is documented that Dominique was a major design source for the Le Normandie, designing one of only four private luxury suites. These suites were all fashioned with highest level of current French taste, design and materials. They were occupied by some of the most famous and talented stars of the day, including Marlene Dietrich, Fred Astaire, Johnny Weissmuller, Cary Grant, James Stewart, Thomas Mann, Salvidor Dali and Joseph Kennedy to name a few.

A remarkable instrument of extreme beauty and historical significance.

French Art Deco Bar

French Art Deco Bar Stand behind with stools

Item #1871

Well I've been waiting to get this bar for about 3 years and finally, it is now in our inventory. We just completely restored it from top to bottom and it looks amazing. One of a kind! I saw this years ago and clients, loved it but!!!!!!!!!!! They have now moved into a new place and we now have it in our place (waiting for the right new home). It is a completely French-- Art Deco Bar. Its rare to find a bar this size that was not made for commercial use, this would work great in someone's home, family room, dining room or bar room. The position of the bar would have to be taken into account, seems like it would work great with one end against a wall and the other open to the room. Its the kind of bar that can fit in many different angles so take a good look. I don't know who is the original designer, but for sure it is one of those bars that was custom made, not a production piece. Comes with 4 matching stools also in restored condition. Nice Macassar wood front and also matching wood on the bar stools. It has a great chrome foot rail with a nice wood ebony arm rail. Great hardware holding it all in the place. I could go on and on. The back is waiting for bottles and accouterment to make this the center piece of any room. In a nice dimly lit room, you might have quite a time getting your friends to leave, so make sure you mean it when you say, "belly up to the bar".

Art Deco Streamline Modern Bar with matching stools

Item #1789

Is J. Gatsby anywhere to be found? Offered today from my own private and personal "Speakeasy"! This is an original modern bar which found its way to Art Deco Collection from somewhere in Missouri. I would date it from the late 1930's very New York World's Fair. The exterior is enamel painted on metal or porcelain. Very, very unusual. I was told at the time of purchase, it was originally part of a lunch counter. We did a little work and built a custom made platform to elevate it to "bar" height (also makes a great place to rest your feet or lean right into). The lower platform is finished with black ribbed rubber and metal edging (it has a natural step) We also replaced the top with a matching red formica, no seams.

It has been extremely useful, a lot of fun and great looking! Lots of storage and something you can build a room around (which is what we did back then). There are 4 bar stools that were specially upholstered to match the bar. The colors are a warm beige (a hint of yellow) with red detailing. The front of the bar has this great modernist art deco design with intersecting 1/4 moon shapes in the middle. Nice metal edging all the way around the bar. The back is organized with nice partitioned shelves, great to store anything. We have had some amazing parties with this bar so you better be ready for some serious good times (if you are the eventual buyer). People love it! Great Bar and 4 stools. Who is ready for this beauty?

Art Deco Game table

Art Deco Game table

Item #1742

What a wonderful piece of furniture. Very unique and taken from an original piece with all the earmarks of an outstanding design. Custom made for our shop, but what a table! Let me point out some features I think are very important.

Beautiful mahogany wood octagon table top (rounded edges) on a wonderful inlayed column with a very significant stepped base. (easy to get any legs under this table). The inlay on the base and boards some "real" ivory and some beautiful woods, with slight patina. The top has one side for chess and the other with a felt top for playing cards. if you remove the top, you will find a wonderful backgammon board.

There are 4 inlayed separate trays evenly spread out on all sides of the table. These could be used for chips, games pieces or cocktails. This is a table that is screaming to be used, enjoyed and appreciated.

Art Deco Bar with Back Bar

Stunning Art Deco Custom Bar Original with Back Bar

Item #1707

Presented is a wonderful, large bar bound to add glamour, warmth and sophistication to any room. This piece came to us from Seattle and spent its life deep within the recreational recluse of a private home (which must have been quite a place!). WIth our loving restoration we refinished and refreshed the wood but kept all the original character including the applied metalwork. We replaced broken glass and added a new matching formica top for the bar surface to replace the original cracked linoleum. It is ready for at least another 50 years of fun utilizing your own personal joie de vivre.

This size requires some thought, but it could be worked in many ways. The bar comes in three parts: the front bar, the lower back bar and the upper back bar. The wood is a honey colored birch. There is nice illumination from the top, with circular mirrors to set off the back bar. The front bar has four separate drawers with lots of storage beneath for bottles and bar supplies. All you need to do now is put your imagination to the test and get ready to invite your friends for a bit of magic, good times and tripling the light fantastic!
