Crowning the Successful



(Advertisement for Weber Pianos)



by Joseph Keppler (1876)

weber pianos ad (1877)


Image shows a grand piano atop a staircase, with sun rays emerging from the background and Columbia laying a laurel wreath on it. Cherubs bear shields, one reading “Tonal Exhibition United States Centennial.” A group of gentlemen and ladies have gathered round, many of them resembling famous musicians of the period (I definitely spot Offenbach and Liszt among the gathering).

I think this is only the third advertisement I have posted thus far, only the second actually from Puck’s pages. And both of those were ads for pianos!
