Steinway Model O Grand Piano 1901 6 foot


1 in stock

SKU: stway01901 Category:


This lovely 1901 Model O has been stored in the same house and played since 1972, during which time it received tuning and basic maintenance. Prior to that it was owned by a prominent member of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra for many years. It has had a few repairs with Steinway parts (see below) but otherwise is in very good original condition. It is a great candidate for a full rebuild or for someone who wants a vintage player.

The instrument has some provenance and documentation with it.

More photos will follow.
