Art Case Hamburg Steinway B “Marquetry Style” $55K 1902 Rebuilt 1990’s

Here is a Art Case Hamburg B that was made in 1902 and was originally sold by Harrods of London. It is in pristine condition both inside and out. The ornate case is called “Marquetry Style” according to Steinway NY records. It appears to have been rebuilt with a Steinway Action over the past 20 years with very little use during that time period. The soundboard is in excellent condition without any apparent visible cracks. The action is very responsive and it sounds like a beautiful, sublime Hamburg B. The owner is a high end piano tuner technician rebuilder that maintained the piano and did the rebuild. MARQUETRY DEFINITION: decorative artistry where pieces of material (such as wood, ivory or shell) of different colors are inserted into surface wood veneer to form intricate patterns such as scrolls or flowers; found in furniture or decorative accessories made of wood.
