Hello.

Has anyone ever come across an Ives spinet piano? They are small spinets made about 25+ years ago. I can't find anything about them on the internet so I thought I would ask here.

Thanks

Jason

There is no listing for it in my Pierce Piano Atlas,, which is considered the definitive reference volume on identifying pianos. There are three small-time early and mid- 19th century makers by that name, but it's a safe assumption they weren't the makers of your piano.

I would assume it's what we call a "stencil" - branded - piano made by another manufacturer.

Do you want my honest opinion of that piano?

It's overpriced by about $947.

Well I am not purchasing it. This is just a pic of one I found just like it.
I am finding out info for a client that recently got one just like this, that was her grandmothers. I even contacted the guy about this one in the pic and he knows very little about it.

So I am just going with your information you gave.

Thanks:)

It is overpriced!. I found a news paper article with a sale add for Ives, along with some Hammond organs from February of 1980.

OH wow! Pretty cool, but yeah a little pricey even for 1980!

Found the scene from the movie Poltergeist were the piano starts to roll and move on its own. Ives looking spinet.
