Art case pianos are a category of pianos that blend exceptional musical performance with exquisite craftsmanship and design. These instruments are often regarded as both musical instruments and works of art. The defining feature of art case pianos is their exquisite cabinet design. These pianos are known for their ornate and visually striking exteriors. Cabinet materials can range from exotic woods like rosewood, mahogany, or ebony, and may feature intricate inlays, carvings, and marquetry. The choice of finish, whether polished to a high gloss or finished with unique decorative techniques, adds to the aesthetic appeal.
