Among these pieces is a large ebony piano inlaid with bronze ornaments that was specially made for Khedive Ismail in 1865 and then inherited by his son, prince Hassan.
The piano was moved from the Shubra palace by the grandchildren of Prince Hassan, who had inherited it and kept it until the death of the last granddaughter, Naglaa. The piano was then moved from her apartment in the Garden City neighborhood to Prince Muhammad Ali Palace in Manial until the completion of the restoration of the Mohamed Ali Shubra Palace, where it will be displayed in a permanent exhibit.
The piano was produced by the German Grotrian-Steinweg company. It is made of ebony inlaid with bronze. It is based on three legs connected to each other, and its sides and legs are decorated with metal ornaments. In its front there is a special playing unit topped by a cover.
