Steinway A – Art Case – Full Restoration SOLD
This Steinway 6’1″ Model A1 is a top quality performance rebuild by Wells Pianos. This piano is a true piece of history. It was hand crafted in 1889 and owned by one family here in Saint Paul. In 1889, Montana, Washington, and the Dakotas were granted statehood; the Wall Street Journal was founded; the Savoy opened in Paris; Nellie Bly began her trip around the world.
The hand crafted quality of this piano is not being reproduced today.
Own a true piece of American history.

- This is one of the first truly modern designed Steinway pianos. It features a standard webbed plate flange, and truly overstrung scale. The action rail and keys are identical to today’s Steinway. The footprint is slim and sleek because of the omission of the last 3 treble keys (which never get used anyway–you would be hard pressed to even find music calling for them).

- New Dampers
- Wonderfully Prepared & Voiced
- This is a true performance piano with another lifetime ahead of it. This piano is history reborn and living.
