1946 Steinway Model M Grand Piano #319614 | Circassian Walnut – Art Case 

First introduced in 1911, the Steinway & Sons Model M Grand Piano has become the quintessential ‘baby’ grand. Measuring approx. 5’7″ in length, these beautiful instruments offer a sought after balance between manageable size and high-level performance. The Model M is still being manufactured today and is a popular staple of both the New York and Hamburg Steinway piano lineups. Steinway Model M Grands are very popular in homes throughout he world and are also commonly found serving in institutional and even performance settings.

Steinway & Sons Model M #319614 was built in 1946 at the New York Steinway Factory. This golden-era instrument was crafted in a ‘modern’ Sketch 380 Sheraton case design with square cabinet arms and octagonal, spade style legs that terminate on brass casters. What makes this piano especially unique, is the highly figured Circassian Walnut cabinet veneer. Often prized in small quantities for use on items such as gunstocks and pieces of fine furniture, it is quite uncommon to find covering an entire grand piano! It is highly unusual to find an instrument with this level of detail – especially in a modern cabinet design!

Our team has completed a full restoration of this rare Steinway. The piano’s keyboard features new keytops and restored original sharps. The action has been fully rebuilt with all new parts including dimensionally correct Renner wippens, hammers shanks, and flanges. The original damper system has been restored and is as smooth as silk. Our expert piano technicians have fully voiced and regulated this instrument to ensure it produces a clear, powerful, Steinway quality of tone. This instrument is a pleasure to play and features a beautiful dynamic range. The belly of the instrument features the original solid-spruce Steinway Factory soundboard with new bridge pins. A new, custom-fitted hard maple pinblock has been handcrafted and installed. The cast iron plate, the backbone of the instrument, has been expertly rebronzed in a rich polyurethane and the raised detailing has been hand-lettered. New music wire and bass strings of the highest caliber have been coiled to new, blued tuning pins. Our cabinet refinishing process is labor-intensive and completed with the utmost care. Our rebuilt Steinways are finished in a fine quality closed pore, hand-rubbed lacquer. This allows for optimum finish clarity and an eye-popping final result that brings out the true character of the wood beneath. The cut of walnut utilized on this instrument is beautifully figured and absolutely breathtaking. The refinished cabinet is paired with the original, restored brass hardware.

Our piano restoration work is very extensive and we carefully remanufacture each of our vintage pianos to return to them to a like-new quality of tone, touch, and visual appeal. This piano is a true crown jewel! We invite you to visit our newly built showroom and discover this piano for yourself.
