Cute spinet by Kimball that was formerly a player piano.  It can only be played manually now and works like new.  Nice keys and padded bench make it a classy lil’ show piece.

Perhaps the most famous and most successful of all piano manufacturers in history was the W.W. Kimball Piano Company of Chicago. William Wallace Kimball founded what was to become one of the largest piano companies in the world in 1857. W.W. Kimball was an amazing entrepreneur and sales genius, and was able to promote his pianos on a nationwide basis that was very much ahead of its time.  Prior to 1888, most pianos sold by Kimball were actually built by other manufacturers such as Hallet & DavisEmersonChickering & Sons, and J. P. Hale.
Kimball began manufacturing their own pianos in 1888 and the firm grew very quickly.  Kimball’s manufacturing plant was one of the largest in the industry, and by the turn-of-the-century, Kimball was manufacturing around 20,000 pianos annually!  In addition to their own Kimball brand, the firm produced a number of other brand names including Hinze, Dunbar, Whitney and Harrison.
