Cornish and Company Piano
Built in 1899 in Washington NJ
Has an effects pedal also known as a “Banjo Pedal”. Four foot pedals in all from left to right: Piano, Pianissimo, Orchestral (Banjo Pedal), Sustaining pedal.
This would need to a little work to play but is a grand example of the craftsmanship of the time. Beautiful turn of the century carved details all around with decorative flourishes even on the pin block and bridge.
Here's a link to the original Cornish Catalog that I found on line:
This was collected by a Dartmouth music major and bequeathed to us when he moved to Japan 20 years ago and has since never been recollected.
Will help arrange transport from Wilder VT
