Gevaert upright piano, Ghent, 1935

The Gevaert family was active in Ghent from 1846 and in Liège from 1870. Around 1890 Beyer took charge over the piano factory in Ghent. From the 1930’s they produced a high number of short grands and pianinos. In every interior the piano was a sign of wealth and wellbeing. This piano was meant to create a surprise effect. This looks like a closed art deco  cupboard but once opened it becomes a piano.
