Sir Edwin Lutyens designed, we believe, ten pianos in conjunction with Broadwood who made the instruments for the Paris Exposition of 1919. Two of the ten are illustrated here. One is in private hands, the other, (with the chunkier under-structure) is in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The whereabouts of the remaining eight is unknown.
In conjunction with David Winston of Period Pianos, (www.periodpianos.com) we are able to offer either of these two instruments with the cabinet work of the case being built around either a contemporary, (to Lutyens) or modern piano. David Winston is very experienced; he holds a Royal Warrant as piano restorer to the Queen and is widely recognised as one of the world's leading makers and restorers of keyboard instruments.
Edwin’s son Robert Lutyens designed the third piano in our collection – illustrated in B&W some time in the late 1920s. Whilst we have no idea whether or not it still exists or where it may be, we would be able to produce a facsimile of it with the help of David Winston.
Robert Lutyens also designed this whimsical music stand.
The piano stool is of our own design, which may be adapted to each of the different designs and is available as a single or double stool.
