KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Feb. 26, 2016 - PRLog -- The Antique Piano Shop (http://antiquepianoshop.com/) has recently released this outstanding antique piano, a very rare Prairie Style Influenced Smith & Barnes Arts & Crafts Upright Piano (http://antiquepianoshop.com/product/720/stickleyellis-inspired-smith-barnes-arts-crafts-upright-piano/), a Smith & Barnes Piano Inspired By Chicago and Prairie Style Geometric Craftsman Design (http://antiquepianoshop.com/product/720/stickleyellis-inspired-smith-barnes-arts-crafts-upright-piano/).

The Arts & Crafts Movement in America was most popular from about the 1900 – 1915 period, and had all but disappeared before 1920. Although the Arts & Crafts Movement was a relatively short-lived design era, hundreds of thousands of homes were built and furnished in the popular Craftsman/Mission style. Today, there is a huge Renaissance in the Arts & Crafts Movement; Original Craftsman style homes are being renovated, new Craftsman style homes are being built, and most major furniture lines are manufacturing and selling furnishings in the Craftsman style to reflect the Mission/Arts & Crafts period.

Because the Arts & Crafts movement was such an extreme change from traditional period styles, piano manufactures were very slow to adapt. Very few manufacturers went to the time and expense of adding Craftsman style pianos to their line. By the time these few makers added Craftsman design pianos to their product line, the Arts & Crafts movement seemed to fade away almost as quickly as it came. As a result, Craftsman style pianos are exceedingly rare today.

This rare Craftsman style piano (http://antiquepianoshop.com/product/720/stickleyellis-ins...) was built by the Smith & Barnes Piano Company of Chicago in 1910 (http://antiquepianoshop.com/online-museum/smith-barnes/), right at the height of the Arts & Crafts movement in America.  This piano is made of richly figured quarter sawn oak wood and features raised front pillars reflecting the Chicago and Prairie Style (http://mm.antiquepianoshop.com/files/ExtendedProductImage/by9UG88OZZuBRB3.jpg), while the front panels are adorned with beautiful rose-pattern geometric carvings (http://mm.antiquepianoshop.com/files/ExtendedProductImage/mTPo272qJcY6y2q.jpg).

This piano is being completely restored, inside and out, with a historical perspective in mind.  If desired, this piano can be equipped with the QRS Pianomation player system (https://antiquepianoshop.com/restoration-services/restoration-packages/qrs-pianomation-player-installation/) and can play by itself by streaming music live on an iPod, computer, iPad, etc.

An authentic matching piano bench is included with this amazing antique piano, available exclusively from The Antique Piano Shop.
