Tiny Grand Piano Can Be Played with a Toothpick (Dec, 1940)
Tiny Grand Piano Can Be Played with a Toothpick
FOUR craftsmen took six months to build a two-inch-square working model of a Steinway grand piano, illustrated at right. Played with a toothpick, it has thirty-six ivory keys and is strung like a full-size instrument. With other objects in the photo â€”miniature enamel furniture, and a dancing girl’s toe bell from Bombay, India, displayed on a finger â€”it forms part of a private collection of 28,500 curios from fifty-four countries exhibited recently in San Francisco.
