1915 Steinway Model A-III Louis XV Grand Piano | #172105 – Ready to Restore

The Steinway Model A was first introduced in 1878 and this Model A-3 is considered to the pinnacle of this model’s design. These parlor grand pianos measure 6′ 4 1/2″ in length, larger than the Model A Grands built today. The large ‘Stretch A’ Model A-III grand is no longer in production by Steinway. [Reliable rumors indicate that it was discontinued due to it competing with the more expensive Model B.]

Crafted in 1915 at the New York Steinway Factory, Steinway Model A-III #172105 features a Rococo, Louis XV Style Art Case cabinet. The case features delicate scrollwork and hand-carved details on every part of the piano. Covered in a rich cut of mahogany, this grand piano is a stunning piece of golden era piano manufacturing and stands ready for your consideration at our Rebuilding Facility. The piano, as it sits, was partially restored some years ago. The price listed is a pre-restoration price. In order to offer our customers as many options as possible, we are currently offering the chance to choose the extensiveness of the restoration. With the finish currently in good condition, do you wish to retain it? What action parts do you prefer? The choice is yours!

A full restoration will include a fully rebuilt belly, a new customized action, and the art case cabinet can be refinished in a closed pore lacquer. The piano is in overall very good structural condition and is an excellent candidate to undergo a full rebuilding process. It is sure to be the musical centerpiece of any room it is placed in.
