Antique Brambach Baby Grand Pianos are original musical instruments produced by the Brambach Piano Company.

Brief history and description

The Brambach Piano Company was established in 1823 and was one of the largest and earliest piano manufacturing companies during the 19th and 20th centuries.

The Brambach Piano Company stopped manufacturing pianos in 1957.
