1900 Steinway Model B Art Case Grand Piano #98818 | Mahogany – Ready to RestoreSteinway Model B #98818 was built in 1900. A lot was changing around the turn of the century, but Steinway quality and innovation remained consistent. Often dubbed ‘the perfect piano’ these instruments are a consistent favorite of professional concert pianists, concert venues, and universities. Steinway’s replacement for the Monitor Grand, these concert instruments were first introduced in 1878. Measuring 6’11” in length with a large soundboard area, these pianos were designed to produce a full, rich bass with a broad, beautiful overall quality of tone. When properly rebuilt, these pianos sing beautifully from the top of the treble to the rumbling bass section. Crafted in an art case design, this Victorian-styled piano features hand carved details and ‘ice cream cone’ type legs. This piano is currently in a semi-gloss finish over an African Flame Mahogany veneer with a grain pattern that is beautifully figured across the entire piano cabinet. This art case grand piano will look stunning when fully restored and refinished.
