Small pianos, rectangular or shaped like a spinet, were already known before the widespread production of grand piano. They were also invented independently of the grand piano even though grand pianos were appreciated in select musical contexts throughout the 18th century, for instance by the Medici. Many early German pianos of a small size, including this one, had tiny, bare wooden hammer heads.
