Steinway & Sons – Model A (1896)
A beautiful example of late Victorian craftsmanship in satinwood with the original paintings. This is an extraordinary piano in the fortunate nature of the preservation of the paintings. The casework was cleaned by professionals and not re-polished. It was restored in our Cambridge workshops in 2001.
The advantage of rebuilding a Steinway is that the basic design has not changed in 100 years. The action is essentially of the same design and you can fit a new one to an older piano achieving the touch and feel of a new Steinway.
As with all Steinways that we restore, we replace the necessary parts with genuine Steinway parts, with the view to retaining the instruments’ originality.
