Glass Artist Jon Kuhn’sPiano for $1.2M

Kuhn Studio has announced the availability of a $1.2 million grand piano. The stunning 7'4" black Kuhn-Bösendorfer piano (along with its matching bench) is inset with as many as 100-thousand hand cut, polished jewels arranged in tasteful diamond patterns. The instrument has been eighteen months in the making and is a "grand collaboration" between L. Bösendorfer Klavierfabrik GmbH of Vienna, Austria and Jon Kuhn, the world's foremost cold glass sculptor.

Each instrument will have the purchaser's name written in gold leaf embedded deep within a remarkable crystal fallboard logo. This unusual design feature assures that the initial owner's name (whether art collector or professional pianist) will endure -- along with the piano. - BornRich
