Antique Vintage Steinway Sons Historic Upright Piano Ivory Key Instrument :
Own a genuine piece of history!
This piano came out of an old hotel that is listed with the National Register of Historic Places. It was once an upscale hotel for railroad travelers and provided accommodations for commercial travelers, salespeople, railroad employees, and rail-wary passengers. This historic 1883 Steinway & Sons New York Upright Model E Ebonized Piano with Serial No. 51163 was completed on November 9, 1883 (the 30th anniversary year since Steinway and Sons was founded in 1853) by Steinway & Sons in New York and delivered on November 17, 1883 to Knight & Waterbury, General Agents for Steinway, Chickering, and Gabler Pianos, located at 409 Lawrence St. Denver, Colorado. Afterward, this piano made its trek to the Wild Wild West, Cochise County Arizona! Cochise county was the heart of the wildest of the west and the home of the famous Tombstone and even Benson, AZ which was a hub-city in Southern Arizona for railway travel back in the days of the wild west and the Cochise county seat is no other than that of Bisbee AZ; well you know, all the places mentioned in the movies and history books.
After enduring such a colorful and tough wild history, because this Steinway & Sons 1883 Upright Piano is such a quality crafted product, it has not only survived well over a century, but it still has that quality sound that only a Steinway can deliver. Understandably so, it could use some TLC, please see photos and Sellers Notes for details. This is still a great conversation piece to add to any antique collection, or if you choose, you may restore this piece as an investment that will continue to grow. Either way, it’s an investment that will only continue to grow in value with the passage of time.
