Bijouette short scale upright piano 1930s

Bijouette short scale upright piano 1930s


This is a short scale 6 octave compact art-deco style piano made by Bijouette. It is ideal if you want a real acoustic piano but don't have the space for a full size model. I believe it was made in the 1930's, and may have been originally built for a rich man's yacht... Dimensions are 17 Depth x 46 Width x 33 Height.
It sounds great when newly tuned, but it does need some extra work to make it stay in tune for more than a few weeks. The pegs anchoring the strings are prone to slippage and have to be banged back in, which then means it needs retuning. I'm told that this can be sorted out with oil around the peg holes to expand the wood and tighten the grip on the pegs or it could also be fully re-pegged. Either way, it's a job for a piano repair expert, hence the reduced price. We've had a couple of pro piano tuners work on it and both have remarked that it is worth doing because of the sound and design of the piano.
We will look at offers, and the buyer would have to arrange own transport.
