I came into possession of this unusual piano. I was told that it was used on a yacht owned by a mafia boss due to its size and weight. It is in excellent condition and plays very well. It has serial number 79791 stamped into it. Does anybody have any information about these pianos? How many were made, how old is it, what was their primary use, what is the value of something like this? It draws the attention of anyone that sees it and people seem to be fascinated by it.

It's 44" tall, not exactly a miniature, is it?

Yeah, definitely not miniature.

That doesn't mean it's not interesting... Whether it is or isn't, ultimately, is in the eye (ear?) of the beholder.

It is a Tom Thumb piano. There were a lot of these sold with different labels. I think they were all made by Kohler and Campbell, but different brand names would be stenciled on them. They were very nice for small pianos. The fact that so many prominent makers sold them under their name attests to that.

Well, when you sit on the stool to play and it is only 20" inches tall, it looks pretty miniature to me. smile

Twenty inches tall? There is no piano manufactured that is only twenty inches tall; that's only an inch or two taller than the height of the bench that one sits on. All upright pianos are measured from the floor to the top of the lid. Twenty inches? I don't think so and pictures of other "Tom Thumb" pianos confirm that they measure around 40" tall.

Regards,

Can we get something for scale to see how big this thing really is? A banana perhaps? I kid, but a tape measure from the floor to the top of the piano would be a nice thing to see.

The piano is 44" tall. The keyboard may be 20" above the floor. I have not measured. They were serious pianos for kids.

The Piano BENCH is 20" tall. Here it is next to a standard kitchen chair.
