Ellington Piano Co. was established in 1893. It was controlled by the Baldwin Piano Co. and was discontinued about 1930. Gibson Guitars acquired the Ellington name in 2001 when they purchased the Baldwin name.
This Ellington Upright Piano is a fine example of a Late Victorian Art Case piano. It has a wonderfully rich Quarter-Sawn Oak veneer and a beautiful beaded trim around the lid, matching the design around the table. The owners had us install a wireless remote Pianomation system along with its restoration.
The following photographs show the piano before we initiated refurbishment.
