1923 Duo Art Reproducing Piano w/ Many Rolls!
We are proud owners of an incredibly special and unusual George Steck Duo Art baby grand Reproducing (ie, Player with rolls) Piano circa 1923, along with 30+ music rolls to go with it. It is the most amazing instrument you can imagine, incredibly steampunk, and in fabulous condition! My family had acquired it from the estate of a wealthy piano expert in Atlanta GA who had spent years painstakingly restoring every element of the bellows, solanoids, tubes, etc. to their original glory. It is in fabulous condition, especially considering it is nearly 100 years old! One metal knob that needs repair, and most pianos will need re-tuning after being moved.
Unfortunately, after my mom’s recent passing and a move, I am unable to keep the piano.
This piano is currently located in my home in Durham, NC. It was appraised in 2016 for over $12,000 by Michael and Gene RayBould, who are highly respected expert antique Duo Art Reproducing piano restoration specialists (see contact info below). They commented at how amazingly well restored all the systems are on this piano, and what a rare and wonderful Duo Art specimen it really is!
See photos and video link below. We will include about 30 piano rolls with the piano, they are wonderful! A wide selection of vintage jazz, old time popular music, as well as more recent and holiday tunes.
This is an amazing deal, as this is a very rare and fine quality fully operational antique instrument. If you search the web for one of these Duo Art Steck pianos in good condition, prices tend to range anywhere from $12,000 to $45,000!
