This antique Steinway Model A grand piano (serial no 91299 - 1898) is a wonderful instrument to play. At 6'2" long, the popular Steinway Model A will work well in almost any room and combines a warm and resonant tone with responsive touch.

This piano is in very good condition for its age, with a lovely tone throughout the register. The wrest plank, iron frame and bridges all appear fine and tuning stability is very good.

The action on this piano is being lightly refurbished, reshaping the hammers to optimise the tone and regulating throughout for consistency of touch.

The rosewood case is a particular feature of this piano, with an original fretted music desk. It has clearly been well looked after, although there are of course some areas of wear commensurate with many years of service as a much-loved family instrument. As seen on the photos, some areas of the case are significantly sun faded. This is very common in rosewood pianos; while not unattractive, it could be returned to an immaculate and unified finish with a full repolish - just ask for more details.

This superb instrument is an excellent opportunity to acquire a fantastic and much sought after piano to enjoy and play as it is. However, it would also make a superb base to fully restore back to as-new condition, resulting in a piano worth £30-40,000.

To view and play this piano, please call 01884 906313.
