1917 Steinway Model B Louis XV Art Case Grand Piano | #180473 – Restored

This gorgeous Steinway & Sons Model B Grand Piano was crafted at the New York Steinway Factory during what is considered by many to be the company’s true golden era of quality. [The serial number indicates a manufacturing date of 1917, however, records indicate the piano was finished and shipped to Steinway dealer Lyon & Healy in Chicago in December of 1916.] First introduced in 1878 and long considered to be a near ‘perfect piano’, the Steinway Model B has become the favorite instrument of countless professional pianists. This particular, exquisite Model B is a true feast for the eyes and ears. The ornate Art Case cabinet styling is done in a Rococo, Louis XV style. [Known officially as Sketch No. 501A.] The case features delicate scroll work and hand carved detailing and is covered in rich Circassian Walnut. This beautiful woodwork extends to the matching bench as well.

 

The overall design and quality of the woodworking on the instrument's case is breathtaking. This piano features an extremely rare Circassian Walnut cabinet with a deep, beautiful grain pattern. This wood is very popular due to the distinctive and elegant look. Used extensively in the past for everything from furniture to gun stocks, this wood has seen a decrease in supply and is quite rare to find in use today. The original brass hardware has been polished and new solid brass casters have been installed.

This piano features the original Steinway Factory soundboard which has been restored. The piano's action has been fully rebuilt with genuine Steinway hammers, new shanks and flanges and German Renner Wippens. The original two piece ivory key tops have been expertly restored by our head ivory restorer and the cabinet scroll detailing is in excellent condition. The elegant design of this art case piano was typical of turn of the century styling and is still as stunning today as it was a hundred years ago. This art case piano will be a unique and eye-catching musical centerpiece to any room it is placed in.  This piano commands respect both as a work of visual art and as a wonderful musical instrument.
