This restored 1902 Steinway has been very lightly used since its restoration in 2009. The case has no visable marks or blemishes and has Victorian ice cream cone legs.
The restoration included:
Soundboard - Alaskan Sitka spruce obtained from the same supplier to Steinway NY and built to exact Steinway Specs..
Replaced pinblock and was restrung with all new strings and pins
Replaced action with all new authentic Steinway parts
Refinished case in multi coat hand rubbed satin ebony lacquer finish
The hindge and petals were not re nickeled they were cleaned and polished, which was preferred to retain an older look.
This piano is priced to sell. A new restoration alone would cost far more that the asking price.
