Pianista sold with 4 rolls.
Equipped with an electric pump so you don’t have to pedal.
The pianista is the precursor of the mechanical pianos.
Piano from the end of the 19th century, beginning of the 20th century.
It is a small piece of furniture that can be placed in front of a classical piano.
The wooden “fingers” of the pianist must be placed on the keys of the piano keyboard to make it play mechanically. When you pedal, you create a vacuum of air, which moves the wooden fingers that press the keys of the keyboard. And this leads to a roll of perforated paper that plays a musical tune.
Very original piece for collector.
The best is to watch the video :))
