We have antique square pianos for sale or we can restore your own antique instrument. Square pianos or box pianos were most popular for domestic use as they were smaller than the fortepiano and they were rectangular (not square) in shape. With the keyboard running parallel to the longest side, made from around 1770 to 1880 the compass varied from 5 octaves for early models and became larger the later they were made, they were totally superseded by upright pianos.
