Collection: George P. Bent Pianos

George P. Bent Pianos, founded by George P. Bent in 1870 in Chicago, Illinois, are renowned for their robust construction and exceptional sound quality. Bent, originally a furniture dealer, transitioned to piano manufacturing and quickly gained a reputation for producing reliable and musically expressive instruments. The company was particularly known for its Crown pianos, which featured unique innovations such as the Orchestral Attachment, allowing pianists to produce sounds mimicking orchestral instruments.

The pianos were marketed under several brands, including Crown, Concord, and George P. Bent, catering to different segments of the market. These pianos were celebrated for their rich, resonant tone and durable construction, making them a popular choice for both home and professional use. Despite ceasing production in the early 20th century, George P. Bent pianos remain highly regarded by collectors and restorers for their historical significance and lasting quality.
