About this object

[en] This is the second of a group of three upright pianos of essentially identical action and design, and differing mostly in the style of the case. Like CIM-002, its legs have curved shapes reminiscent of art noveau, but they are they more elaborate. Art nouveau influence may also be felt in the more elaborate front panels, particularly in the upper one. The dampers are located over the hammers, very close to the upper end of the vibrating section of the string.
[pt] Este é o segundo de um grupo de três pianos verticais com mecânicas e estruturas virtualmente idênticas, diferindo essencialmente no estilo do móvel. Tal como no caso de CIM-002, também neste piano se faz sentir a influência das formas características da Arte Nova nas pernas curvilíneas (aqui mais complexas), mas também nos paineis frontais, particularmente no superior. Os amortecedores estão colocados acima dos martelos, muito próximos do limite superior da parte vibrante das cordas.
