Victorian Model B Steinway Grand Brazilian Rosewood
Built in 1880 It has the Rococo features which define this period such as cabriole legs, ornately carved music rack and pedal lyre.
This instrument was completely rebuilt and restored by Trefz of Philadelphia in 1974.
The keys are the original ivories with the exception of two which were matched with plastic at the very end. They are the most worn feature of the piano as some are slightly chipped at the ends where the ivory overhangs the key in the Victorian style. The key of B6 has a chip which extends a bit past the end of the key and F4 has a hairline crack.
At 6ft, 8in (80inches) it is the perfect size for most rooms, being a true grand, not a baby grand, but it is not as large as a model D or C.
It is in excellent condition as it was the beloved possession of of a Johns Hopkins Peabody Institute trained pianist and doctor. It had pride of place in our home and was like a member of our family. We are selling it because my mother wants to move to a smaller home that will not accommodate a grand piano.
Feel free to contact me to inquire about the piano, make an offer, or discuss delivery options - I will work with any buyer to facilitate quick delivery. There are many competent piano movers in the Baltimore-Washington area that transport nationally and internationally.
As we intend to start listing the house soon, all reasonable offers will be considered.
