The French piano firm of Erard were well known for making wonderful decorative cases for their pianos and supplied royalty and other famous people.  We were fortunate to have a wonderful example of such a piano in our auction sale of the 14th December 2017 made by the maker F. Feller.  The mahogany and kingwood case is very much in the Louis XV style with crossbanded decoration and set with ormolu mounts in the rococo taste .
