This Steinway & Sons Model L was handcrafted in New York in 1999, the 34th in a limited production run of only 200 instruments commemorating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Heinrich Engelhard Steinway (1797-1871), the founder of Steinway & Sons. It was purchased new in 2004 by a private owner and is ready for a new home.
A custom plaque affixed to the treble rim and a special soundboard decal (both pictured) confirm the history and provenance of this instrument. With the closest available comparable pianos currently priced over $100,000 new, you'll undoubtedly appreciate the tremendous value of this instrument.
Henry E. Steinway (born Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg) and Joseph Burr Tiffany, the two individuals honored by this design.
The truly unique design of this piano celebrates the work of the renowned interior designer Joseph Burr Tiffany (1856-1917), who led Steinway's Art Piano Department from 1897 until 1912. Tiffany's design elements are featured in many of Steinway's most famous Art Case pianos. Tiffany supervised the creation of the famous 100,000th Steinway Piano, which was presented to the White House in 1902.
A number of this instrument's decorative features echo those of Steinways produced during Tiffany's tenure, including:
Victorian music desk also included with this piano.
The piano's unique Pommele Sapele wood cabinet features lustrous, wavy, roe-like figures. Sapele mahogany is native to highland forests of south-central Africa.
The smallest Steinway concert grand piano offering remarkable depth and resonance yet requires less space than full-sized grands.
