As most of you know, my parents put my childhood home on the market almost a year ago and moved into their gorgeous little townhouse. Downsizing meant they had to scale down on their furniture and fortunately for us, we’ll inherit a few pieces as soon as the house sells. 🙂
My love for antiques was undoubtedly inherited from my mother. One of our favorite pieces is an antique piano from the late 1800s. My mother purchased it years ago and I’ve always loved and admired it. After my parents moved, the piano took up a temporary residence at my grandmother’s house. My 87 year-old grandmother (whom I love dearly) has never had a problem speaking her mind. My mother often says “She’ll tell you how the cow ate the cabbage!”. Shortly after the piano was moved to her house, she started trying to convince my mother to sell it and even lined up a few eager buyers! Needless to say, my mother and I couldn’t bear the thought of selling such a treasure and a few weeks ago it was delivered to my house! It fits in our living room perfectly and will stay with us until mom and dad build their plantation home in the country. 🙂 It’s absolutely beautiful and we’re thrilled to have such an amazing heirloom in our house!
Unlike most modern pianos, the antique only features two pedals instead of the customary three.
