This beautiful Steinway piano was originally hand-crafted at the Steinway & Sons factory in Queens, New York in 1902 when the company was only 49 years old.
Notice the Old World architectural lines and “window pane” legs that were in vogue at the beginning of the 20th Century. Back then, piano cabinet hardware was nickel-plated rather than brass like our modern pianos of today.
But it’s what you DON’T see that is most important.
116 years of continued improvement. This piano was sent back to Steinway 18 months ago to be restored with the improved designs, features, and 165 years of experience that goes into today’s new Steinway pianos.
Steinway & Sons has been awarded over 70 patents by the United States Patent Office for improvements to the piano since 1902.
The skill of the craftsmen. Many of today’s Steinway craftsmen trained under the same original craftsmen and their descendants that built this piano 116 years ago.
This magnificent piano is truly a Steinway, not just a piano with a Steinway name of the front.
