Newer than most of the pianos in the collection but unusual enough to be kept. Mathushek re-introduced the square piano in the 1930s. The original music desk would have been plain and simple, more in keeping with the lines of the case design. Unlike the original squares of the 19th century, this one has tuning pins along the edge nearer the keys as in the Hisky. The name Colibri has been given to this model, no doubt after the French for Hummingbird, though the company themselves called it a Spinet Grand as seen in the picture
