The famous piano was leased to the museum by the owner, who has since passed away, now his family wants it sold to the highest bidder.
Priscilla Presley gave the piano to Elvis on their first wedding anniversary. It's painted with 24K gold. The piano was owned by Andrew Marsh and starting in 1991 had been on loan to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Manufactured by Piano & Organ Company in 1928, the grand piano was originally white and was referred to as the “world's largest grand”. Its first owner was the Memphis Auditorium but it later got sold to the O.K. Houck Company, which owned it until 1955. The piano stayed at Graceland until Elvis decided, in the early 70s, to give it to his Aunt Nash to use at her Church
Starting bid in US dollars is: $3,500,000.00!
