From the back cover: The Madame Pompadour Piano on permanent display in the Sevres Room of Creighton's Restaurant is rare and priceless. Made originally as a harpsichord for Madame Pompadour during the reign of Louis XV, there are 32 French enamel plaques richly decorating the sides, top of case and lid. Handmade from Holly, Satinwood and French Walnut, the portrait of Madame Pompadour is on the music rack. Richly trimmed, ornamented with more bronze ormolu and mother-of-pearl keys. About 30 years ago the harpsichord was removed and a Steinway Grand action was installed.
