Steinway Model 40 Upright | Hepplewhite Art Case – Mahogany #323474
Introduced in 1939, the Model 40 Upright Piano was the first 40″ vertical piano offered by Steinway. Henry Z. Steinway wrote that ‘About 1935, it became apparent that if our industry was to survive, it must supply a demand for an attractively styled Vertical piano, and to be attractively styled it would have to be as low in height from the floor as possible.’ The Model 40 was the result of that development. This vintage upright piano was built in 1947 and features a Hepplewhite cabinet design in a natural mahogany. This attractive styling was offered from between 1940 to 1953. Steinway offered the Model 40 in well over a dozen different case styles including the Hepplewhite, Louis XV and even a Victory style specifically designed for military use during World War II.
Steinway Model 40 #323474 is in very good condition and has been expertly refurbished by our piano rebuilding team and was well maintained over the years by qualified piano technicians. The mahogany ‘art case’ cabinet is in fine condition and has been cleaned and polished by our piano refinishers. The piano features the original action parts. The underfelted hammers have been shaped, the keys leveled and the original ivory keytops restored. The piano includes the matching original bench. Steinway & Sons Upright Pianos offer a number of the same innovations that are key to the design of their full sized grands. This ensures these pianos offer the iconic Steinway quality of tone and character.
