Chickering and Sons was an American piano manufacturer located in Boston, known for producing award-winning instruments of superb quality and design. The company was founded in 1823 by Jonas Chickering and James Stewart. Chickering pianos continued to be made until 1983.
Chickering pianos have served several presidents in the White House, including Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt. The Chickering company gifted the famous Hungarian pianist-composer Franz Liszt with a Chickering piano, and he was so thrilled with the sturdiness and rich sound that he claimed he could hardly stop playing it.
