We are currently nearing the completion of this beautiful 1926 ‘K’ model Vertigrand Steinway & Sons Upright piano, as shown in the photos. Steinway & Sons pianos are the finest and most sought after pianos ever manufactured.
Manufactured in Hamburg Germany, this piano was hand made by German craftsman over a period of 6 months. The cabinet was hand crafted from Brazilian Mahogany, a wood so rare it is no longer able to be milled or exported. The cabinet of this piano has been completely stripped back to bare wood and fully hand polished, this involved more than 120hrs labour alone in our piano Restoration workshop.
The keyboard is manufactured from extremely high grade ebony and ivory which have been fully restored by us. This involved more than 20 hrs of labour.
The piano action is currently being rebuilt and we are awaiting more parts and materials from the US.
Upon completion in January 2017, this piano will be available for sale. It is an extremely rare instrument of the highest quality. The quality and precision of this piano is better than any new piano on the market today and would be a beautiful feature piece in any home which will appreciate in value and passed down to future generations.
A new Steinway upright piano of this size is now in excess of $70,000.
The piano has been advertised in South Australia and interstate and the asking price is $16,995 inc GST.
