Description (Brief)
This square piano was made for Anthony Kuhn in Baltimore, Maryland about 1848. It may have been made in Germany for the Kuhn label. More likely, because it has an action patented in Baltimore by John J. Wise, it might have been manufactured by Wise for Kuhn to sell. This piano has a compass of FF-f4, Wise square action, leather hammers, double-strings throughout, tuning pins at the front, 2 pedals: moderator and damper, wood frame, and a wood case.
