Antique Piano Shop of Tennessee Releases Antique Steinway & Sons Model B Victorian Concert Grand Piano
The Antique Piano Shop, located in Friendsville, Tennessee 20 miles from Knoxville, has released an Antique Steinway & Sons Model B Victorian Concert Grand Piano. This Steinway and Sons Piano, dating from 1890, was recently released after a full restoration by the craftspeople of the Antique Piano Shop.
By 1890, the Model B Steinway Concert Grand had become the premier instrument for America’s concert stages and large estate homes. This lovely Model B Steinway was built in 1890, a time when instruments were just beginning to evolve from heavily carved Baroque and Rococo styles into more classic and traditional designs.
This instrument is made in what is commonly known as Steinway’s “Ice Cream Cone” leg design, one of Steinway’s simpler yet elegant Victorian designs. The finish is done in high-polish black lacquer which is accented by exotic burl wood trim on the legs, lyre, music rack, and inside rim. The lid prop and underside of the lid is also finished in beautiful exotic burl wood.
The level of restoration this piano has received is the finest possible quality, with the craftspeople of the Antique Piano Shop using period appropriate craftsmanship to restore this Steinway piano to original glory. This outstanding Steinway & Sons piano is a living piece of history and the Antique Piano Shop has released this fully restored piece as a testament to the era in which it was created.
