I'm trying to find more information on the makers of Pease pianos. I own a Pease Grand that was made between the mid to late 1800's. If anyone has any information about this make, please contact me. It has always "made beautiful music".

The Pease Piano Co. started business in 1844 by Chauncey B. Pease in Coopertown, NY. They ceased business in 1949. If your piano is truly as old as you say it is, you are fortunate that it still holds tune.

Of course, right across the street from Pease was another piano maker owned by William Carrotte. For a long time, Pease and Carrottes were very popular in the NY region. Eventually Mr. Pease's son married Mr. Carrotte's daughter, and they merged the company after their fathers retired. The young couple had lots of children, and to this day all the Pease and Carrottes get together once a year in Coopertown for a reunion. Unfortunately, both of the old piano factories are gone, having long since been replaced by a cannery. But no one minds that the old piano factories are gone, since Pease and Carrottes have been canning for a long time. There was another factory about 3 blocks away that was owned by a fellow named Wilhelm Korn, but it seems he didn't get along very well with the Pease and Carrottes. His son tried to get the other Carrotte daughter interested in him, but she thought his ears were too big......


Please don't take offense to my rambling. No harm was intended. But I'm brain damaged, and sometimes I see things that are just too good to pass up. This was one of them. The serious answer was in the first paragraph.

You dog, you! But I will confess, DUMB old me was buyin' it all the way into the second paragraph. \:D
What a way to start a relaxing Friday evening. First a big bourbon and water (with a wedge of lemon, or course), the Olympics on the big screen and playing in The Forum all at once. It just doesn't get any better than this. Well, I could think of a few things, like.... ;\)

You know folks, Larry’s posts here are just another indication of how whacky February makes people. Pease, Carrottes and Korn and his EARS were too big, I almost fell out of my chair I laughed so hard!!!

Some poor soul may actually take it seriously and ask some poor guy if they’d ever seen a Pease and Carrottes piano or if they could buy a used Korn? LOL, I’m still laughing.

It’s Atlanta. I know. I lived there for five years. Spring comes earlier down there. Makes one get restless.

Thanks for the information. And yes, the piano is still in good condition for the years it has on it.

Would you believe we it bought for $100.00 before it was demolished along with an old building? Too true. The demolition team was getting ready to push it out of a second story window when we spotted it. We replaced what was needed and have been using it since then. (1963).

Sit back and enjoy the weekend and the Olympics. That's what I'm planning on doing. Again, thanks for the information.

There's nothing wrong with occasionally
intending some [serious] harm.

After all....you can't expect everybody to love everybody else everywhere in this world of ours all of the time.

Expect us [wise-cracking] piano guys!

no names......to protect

:rolleyes: Oh lord! It's bad enough that I'm surrounded by emergency personnel with a wierd since of humor, now I get the piano guys too. Oh well, it takes one to know one.

It's a good thing I brought the Pease with me from Iowa but left the Korn there. \:D
