This information can help guide you in making important decisions.







Chickering was established in 1823 by Jonas Chickering and James Stewart in Boston, Massachusetts.
The partnership of the Stewart & Chickering firm dissolved a few years later. By 1830 Jonas Chickering
became partners with John Mackay, manufacturing pianos as Chickering & Company, and later
Chickering & Mackay until 1841. In 1852 Jonas' 3 sons entered the firm and the named changed to
Chickering & Sons. Jonas passed away in 1853. By 1908 the company was sold to the Aeolian Corp. of
New York, and later this merged into the Aeolian-American piano company in 1932. The Chickering plant
located in East Rochester, NY was closed in 1982, and Chickering was sold to the Wurlitzer Piano Co. in
1985 with pianos manufactured for them in Korea, by Samick. Baldwin then purchased the Wurlitzer &
Chickering names in 1994. Along with Samick, Baldwin also manufactured Chickering grand pianos from
1994 to 2001. In 2002, Baldwin was purchased by the Gibson musical instrument company. Chickering
grands were then made in Korea, by Samick, for Baldwin/Gibson, and then in China in 2006 by the
Sejung Co. according to Baldwin specifications, using Baldwin and Chickering plate and scale designs.

Baldwin's Chickering line discontinued in the USA in 2008.
