The Chickering 110B is prime example of the company’s best grand design ideas.  The wide tail, the  “Swiss Action” - the company’s Erard-Herz action - and its use of a high treble “Harmonic Bar” in place of the use of agraffes in the high treble;  the flexible soundboard perimeter - these combined for an extraordinary design.

The photo above uses borrowed legs from a contemporary Steck, as the original legs were modified.  Fortunately Clark Panaccione of Fitchburg, MA has provided the public with a drawing of the legs (see above), which we hope to replicate.
