Custom Designed Faux Finished Steinway Baroque Style Model B Concert Grand Piano
Note: This piano was done in a customized white marbelized pearlescent finish with gold and copper accents. Although this piano has been sold, this finish is available on other instrument by special order.
The Steinway Model B is considered by professional musicians to be the perfect piano. The model B is the smaller of the two Steinway Concert Grand Piano sizes, and it is widely used around the world on the concert stage. The Model B Steinway is so perfect that it has remained virtually unchanged for the past 100 years!
Nearly all Steinway Model B pianos were made for institutional and professional use, and most were finished in simple black lacquer cases with traditional square spade legs. This amazing piano is one of the most exceptional Model B Concert Grand Pianos we have ever had in our collection. This Model B Steinway was custom designed and finished in a marbelized pearlescent faux finish with rich subtle tones of copper and gold accents. Note the extensively hand carved legs, lyre and music rack, making it suitable for the most lavish mansion or estate. It is interesting to consider the fact that this piano was built in New York in 1935, during the Great Depression, when only a wealthy few could afford such an excessive luxury! This piano would have been the ultimate in both superior musical quality and jaw-dropping aesthetic appeal.
Although this is a large concert size piano, it has an overall delicate and formal appearance. Note the elaborate picture frame carved panels around the entire outside rim of the cabinet accented in metallic gold and copper highlights.
The internal mechanisms have been restored to like new condition, inside and out. This piano is concert ready, and will rival any new Steinway in tone and touch.
If desired, this piano can be equipped with the Pianomation player system, and can play by itself by streaming music live on an iPod, computer, iPad, etc.
The original carved Baroque Rococo style bench is included.
