This is a funky little colourful piano made in the style of Medieval/Renaissance keyboard instruments (virginals). Less anachronistic for medieval sims than having to play a default grand piano, and also nice for modern-day antique collectors, folksy hippies, or fantasy characters. It's found in the Activities section in Buy Mode where the other pianos are found, and costs 800 simoelons.
It comes in four retextures as below, with background paintings taken from classic artwork ranging from the 1300s to the 1600s.
Can be used for medieval or Renaissance characters such as the below musical knight playing the particularly colourful Medieval Tapestry retexture in red tones. He plays knightly and sometimes daily too.
Also can be useful for nature-loving fae folk, especially the idyllic nature scene retexture:
Thanks for looking, hope you'll find this little piano useful.
Unzip the file and move the .package file to your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods folder.
Horse sim is by me (TS3 mesh conversion) but not uploaded anywhere (not ready for prime time!).
Paintings used on the pianos are by Lorenzetti (1338), Anonymous tapestry (c1430), Grauwels (c1580), and ter Borch (c1655).
Piano meshed by me in Milkshape and Blender. Table and seat are modified base game items.
Packaged with Sims 4 Studio, outdoor shadow imported with TSRW.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.

I'm pretty easygoing, please just don't steal or copy my work.
You may recolour my meshes, just please credit me and give a link back here to the item(s).
You may include my creations with your sims, lots, storytelling, etc - just please credit me and give a link back here to my item(s).
Don't claim my creations to be your own work, don't re-upload my stuff to paysites, adfly sites or similar, or to The Gallery.
And, please don't copy my work and upload it here. I learned that's allowed when someone duplicated my Sims 2 Servo conversion and got Featured for it. But, as happened with that person, you'll be disrespected by other Simmers for copying. Because of that, I now ask that if you choose to duplicate my work, you must credit me for having done it first and give a link to my item.
