The extravagant cabinet carvings were created by the famous wood sculpter, Julius Bechler, who ordered the piano for his private home in the the town Achensee in Austria. Julius Bechler was an appointed wood artist for King Ludwig II, owner of the famous Castle Neuschwanstein. Mr. Bechler worked under the King on several castles and created the ornate carvings for this piano for its residency at his home. The piano has been the possession of the Bechler family, at the family home in Austria until now. This is a wonderful opportunity to own an art piece with the fairytale aura from around the King Ludwig II.
