Description

Two pianos made by the Whittlesey brothers are seen here. The pianos were made of rosewood and mahogany with ivory piano keys that had been sawed by hand and mother-of-pearl inlay letters and ornamentation. On the inside of every Whittlesey piano was a brass plate bearing the family name. Henry and John excelled in the mechanics of manufacturing these pricesless painos, while Oramel leaned more to the instruction of music. These pianos would have existed at Music Vale Seminary. - Cindy Lee Corriveau
