Beautiful Schimmel 104 piano with Renner mechanism. Professionally painted in high-gloss black.
Wilhelm Schimmel (1854-1946) founded the famous Schimmel piano factory in Leipzig in 1885, and from 1892 began building grand pianos. In 1927, his son Wilhelm Arno Schimmel took over the company, moved it to Braunschweig and - due to the difficult economic times - merged with other piano manufacturers under the name "Deutsche Pianowerke AG". As of 1931, Schimmel was again an independent company. In 1951 Schimmel presented the world's first transparent Plexiglas grand piano and in 1956 a grand piano with built-in radio, record player and tape recorder.
When Wilhelm Arno Schimmel died in 1961, his son Nikolaus Wilhelm Schimmel succeeded him. Under his leadership, the company experienced strong growth; three French piano factories were acquired, among others: Gaveau (1967), Erard (1970) and Pleyel (1971). These brands returned to France between 1994 and 1996 and now belong to the 'Manufacture Française de Pianos'.
Today, the company is managed by Hannes M. Schimmel-Vogel and Xiejun Wang.
