1887 Steinway & Sons Model C Semi-Concert Grand Piano | #60045

Victorian Cabinet in Brazilian Rosewood – Fully Restored

Steinway & Sons Model C Semi-Grand Pianos measure approx 7’5″ in length and are among the rarest of the larger Steinway Grand Pianos. Considered a ‘semi-concert grand, these instruments were first produced in New York between 1878 and 1905. These pianos continued to be produced in smaller, custom requested runs between 1906 and 1936 and they are still manufactured at the Steinway & Sons Factory in Hamburg. Steinway Model C #60045 was crafted in 1887 at the New York Steinway Factory. This rare, Art Case instrument features a round arm cabinet design with double narrow moldings around the case. It includes a detailed figured music desk with ‘new style’ fretwork, hand-carved Victorian flowerpot style legs with hidden casters, and a large box pedal lyre with carved pillars. This Steinway Model C is covered in a rich cut of Brazillian Rosewood and has been expertly brought to life with a close pore, hand-rubbed polished lacquer. Brazilian Rosewood is no longer used on newly constructed pianos, so finding an instrument with this veneer is truly a treat! The rich, vibrantly figured wood contrasts beautifully with the re-plated, original nickel hardware. This historic vintage piano stands ready to sing the next part of its story.


 

The piano’s action has been fully rebuilt with the finest quality parts including new German Renner wippens and new Steinway Hamburg hammers, shanks, and flanges. The piano’s keyset has been expertly restored and includes new keytops and restored ebony sharps. Our piano technicians have completed extensive action and tone regulation to bring out a responsive touch and the iconic, New York Steinway tone. The original damper heads have been refinished and new damper felts have been installed. A new Renner Back Action has been fitted and the pedal system has been fully restored and regulated. The massive cast iron plate, the backbone of the piano, has been expertly rebronzed and the copious amounts of raised lettering have been hand detailed. New premium German music wire and custom copper wound bass strings have been fitted to finely threaded blued tuning pins. These are driven into a new, custom-fitted hard maple pinblock. A new solid spruce soundboard has been installed for optimum stability and quality of tone.

This is an absolutely stunning vintage instrument and it will surely be the centerpiece of any room it is placed in. The Victorian-style cabinet design speaks of a bygone era of luxury and dedication to craftsmanship. The rare Brazilian Rosewood veneer adds an immense level of depth and visual interest to an already impressive design. This piano is a true example of the golden age of piano craftsmanship and is an instrument of true, concert-level quality. The bold, elegant structure of this piano is matched by a powerful, Steinway quality of tone.
