The famous pianist who’s career spanned over 4 decades owned this rare piano in his Las Vegas home on Shirley Avenue. The Pompadour piano made by Conover is complete with its original stool and original upholstery and has a cream and gilt finish to its ornate casing, just that Liberace taste!
It was recently restored by Forsyths of Deansgate Manchester UK. The piano is also accompanied by documentation of authenticity from The Liberace Foundation and was featured in the Bob Thomas book about Liberace with a picture of the piano in-situ in the book.
