Since the early 1900s Wurlitzer became one of the major names in the music business that included the sale of orchestrions, player pianos, organs and jukeboxes.
By the 1900s Wurlitzer had factories in De Kalb, Illinois (grand pianos) and North Tonawanda, NY (upright pianos).
From about 1900-1916, the Arts & Crafts Movement was a major force in American design.
Although the Arts & Crafts design was very popular during the early 20th century, piano makers were slow to adapt to the Mission/Arts & Crafts design.
The last decade of the 19 century saw some of the finest craftsmanship and quality ever to be put into piano manufacturing.Most of our vintage ephemera collection doesn't show upright pianos until the 1870s, although upright pianos were built on a limited scale all through the early and middle 19 century approached, makers began shifting their production from the square grand piano to the upright piano, as the public's tastes were beginning to change and homes were becoming smaller and less suited for large square grand pianos.In the 1880s and 1890s, upright piano production increased substantially and by the last decade of the 19 century, the square grand piano that had dominated the market for the past century had all but vanished.After the turn-of-the-century, tastes began to change and piano design began to become a bit more streamlined.The ostentatious styles of the late 19 century saw a calmer, less radical movement in interior design than the previous decades, and this change was immediately seen in the evolving styles offer by the major piano manufacturers.1912 Strohber Upright Piano s/n 26620, Walnut, (Made by Smith Barnes?
