A $1.2 million piano

“Spotlights dance down on 216 jewels of lead crystal, set in dazzling diamond patterns into the piano’s black lid, sides, legs, fallboard and bench.

Each jewel features several hundred to several thousand intricately cut, ground and polished pieces of crystal — nearly a half-million in all.”
