1893 Steinway & Sons Model C Semi-Concert Grand Piano | #77931

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 Hamburg Steinway Factory. Steinway Model C #77931 was crafted in 1893 at the New York Steinway Factory. This rare, Art Case instrument features a round arm cabinet design with double narrow moldings around the case, a music desk featuring an intricate latticework design, hand-carved Flower Pot style legs resting on hidden casters, and a large box pedal lyre with carved supporting rods. The cabinet has been expertly refinished in a closed pore, hand-rubbed satin ebony lacquer. This contrasts beautifully with the re-plated, original nickel hardware. Steinway Model C #77931 speaks of the luxury and elegance of a bygone era. This art case instrument is not just a work of visual art, it is also a piano worthy of any performance stage!

 

The piano’s action has been rebuilt with the finest quality parts including new German Renner wippens and new natural felt hammers, shanks, and flanges. The keyset of this piano features the original ivory keytops in pristine condition. The original ebony sharps have been carefully sanded and polished for a consistent feel across the keyboard. 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 installed and the pedal system has been fully restored. The massive cast iron plate, the backbone of the piano, has been expertly rebronzed. New premium German music wire and custom copper wound bass strings have been fitted to blued tuning pins that shine like jewels. 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.

The cast iron plate has been re-bronzed and the raised lettering has been carefully hand-detailed. This is an absolutely stunning vintage instrument and it will surely be the centerpiece of any room it is placed in. It is hard to believe that art case Steinway Grand Pianos, like this one, were the ‘norm’ during the period in which this piano was built! The late 19th, early 20th century is the time that Steinway truly cemented themselves as the world’s premier piano builder. Today, if you want a new piano of a similar replicated style, it must be special ordered at exorbitant cost. This piano is a true example of the golden age of piano craftsmanship and is an instrument of true, concert-level quality.
