Historic Steinway Art Case Piano Once Owned By A Prussian Prince Comes To Long Island

A historic, hand painted Steinway was recently unearthed in Connecticut and restored on Long Island. This unique piano is available for viewing and purchase at Sonny’s Luxury Art Case Pianos, Patchogue, NY. Nicknamed “A Prussian Prince’s Love Piano,” the Steinway grand piano was built in 1900 by craftsmen at the Steinway factory in Hamburg, Germany. The piano is believed to been sold to a Prussian Prince living in La Tour de Peliz, Switzerland.
As if straight out of a fairy tale, the Prince apparently commissioned a master artist to immortalize his love for his princess through a series of “Vernis Martin” style pastoral love scenes painted on the piano. Sonny Stancarone, owner of Sonny’s Luxury Art Case Pianos, says “this is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, a rare combination of art, sublime instrument and romantic history. There’s none other that I know of with all these elements combined into one piano.” To see more photos click PHOTOS.
Sonny’s Pianos, located in Patchogue, New York, is one of the premiere restoration houses for pre-owned Steinways. Sonny’s buys, restores, and sells art case Steinways to a worldwide market through his innovative, interactive all video website. See WEBSITE.
When it was sold to Sonny’s in the spring of 2015, the previous owner described its fascinating past. The owner’s grandmother had purchased the piano at Sotheby’s London Auction House in the 1920’s from the estate of a prince. The piano remained in England until 1960 when it was shipped to her daughter in New York City as a wedding gift. In 1995, the daughter gave the piano to her son and he kept it in his home in Connecticut until it was sold to Sonny’s Pianos.
When Sonny purchased this piano in 2015, the years had taken their toll on the instrument and the artwork. Sonny’s team of expert technicians went to work and rebuilt the piano using the highest quality materials and parts available. A team of two artists completed the restoration of the paintings.The complete restoration took one year.
When he first saw the piano, Sonny knew immediately that this was no ordinary hand painted piano. Sonny said, “It was as if the piano spoke to me and told me that the paintings on the piano represented real people in history and were painted to immortalize a love story.”
Sonny and his staff spent several months researching and analyzing any information they could get about the piano. They contacted Steinway and Sons regarding the pedigree of the piano. Steinway records indicated that the piano was made in their Hamburg, Germany factory in 1900 and that it was sold to a buyer in La Tour de Peilz, Switzerland.
A European art history consultant and member of the Appraiser’s Association of America was hired to evaluate the piano artwork. Her research revealed that La Tour de Peilz was a holiday resort frequented by Prussian royalty. The La Tour de Peilz historical society confirmed that the king and queen of Prussia had a very large estate in that area around the same time. The Nestle Corporation now owns the estate. Sonny’s team also discovered that two Prussian Princes were known to be affiliated with Tour-de Peliz during that time period.. One retiring and living out his life there with his wife after the fall of the royal house of Hohenzollern after WW1.
The art consultant concluded that each scene represented a different love subject. The central theme for the Love Piano is the painting on the lid, a man and woman in a loving embrace. The man wears a crown of garlands on his head, perhaps representing royalty. The woman has red hair and fair skin representative of a person from that region of the world. The consultant determined that the paintings were “Vernis Martin” style, an 18th century technique named for the Martin brothers of Paris, who were instrumental in the development and refinement of lacquer in the style of Asian art. This style was the epitome of luxury and refinement made popular during the period of Louis XV, but ended after the French Revolution. During the mid 19th century, the trend revived and lasted until the 1920s.
The piano is a Steinway model “A” grand piano, also known as a Hamburg A. It measures six feet and has long been considered to be one of the most expensive and desirable piano models in the world, even to this day. Sonny christened the piano, “A Prussian Prince’s Love Piano” in honor of the love themes surrounding the instrument and all the other information that was discovered regarding the piano. Sonny is certain that this beautiful work of art and incredible musical instrument will be purchased by someone as a gift for a loved one, thus adding to the legend of the prince’s love piano.
The piano has already started to make a buzz in the media world as Fox 5, Newsday, LIBN, Verizon Fios1 recently covered the story. Click PRESS for the news coverage and click VIDEO for a video tour of the Prince’s Love Piano.
The price? Sonny says “since this is a one in a million masterpiece we feel that one million dollars is a fair price. Also other rare Steinways have sold in that price range and there are others that are out there now that cost even more.” And he says he is donating 10% of the final sale price to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, Long Island Chapter to help find the cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
Sonny’s passion for pianos and in particular art case pianos goes back to his childhood when he became enamored with his fathers decorative German upright piano and his uncle’s Steinway grand piano. Sonny first started playing the piano at seven years old when his father, a professional pianist, gave him lessons. His warehouse is stocked with a wide assortment of other beautiful art case pianos that he has restored. He calls it, “Sonny’s Luxury Art Case Pianos Collection.” To see other beautiful art case pianos available at Sonny’s, click ART CASE PIANOS.

Piano entrepreneur will donate $100K to JDRF Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund upon sale of Million Dollar Steinway

Luxury piano retailer ups the ante to help find cure fordiabetes.

BOHEMIA, NY, Feb 13, 2017 – Sonny Stancarone, CEO of Sonny’s Luxury Art Case Pianos, a premiere Long Island restoration house for pre owned art case Steinways and other brand name pianos, is pledging to donate $100,000, or 10 percent of the final price of a million-dollar Steinway he has offered for sale, to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Long Island Chapter to help in its quest to find a cure for juvenile diabetes.

“I hope by doing this it will bring attention to the importance of finding a cure for this devastating illness, and the money we raise will help families cope with this condition and improve the quality of their lives,“ said Stancarone, a longtime piano entrepreneur and piano dealer.

“Millions of people around the world live with type 1 diabetes, a life-threatening autoimmune disease that strikes both children and adults. There is no way to prevent it, and at present, no cure. JDRF works every day to change this by amassing grassroots support, deep scientific knowledge and strong industry and academic partnerships to fund research. “Sonny’s contribution will go a long way to supporting our efforts,” said Joann Flick, director of development at JDRF Long Island Chapter.

The million-dollar Steinway, known as the “Prince’s Love Piano,” was purchased by a Prussian prince in 1900 from the Steinway Hamburg, Germany, factory. The prince commissioned a master artist to create a series of King Louis XV “Vernis Martin” style love scenes on the piano to immortalize his love for his princess. The piano itself is a Hamburg Steinway Model A – one of the finest instruments money could buy then and now. The piano is part of Sonny’s luxury art case pianos collection and was purchased and restored by Sonny’s Art Case Pianos over the past year. See photos and video tour of this piano here http://tinyurl.com/zvkpgct.

Stancarone chose the JDRF for his donation, he said, because “the public is generally not aware of what a difficult illness type 1 diabetes is to manage with its daily regimen of blood sugar level monitoring, insulin injections or insulin pump adjustments, exacting dietary restrictions and meal scheduling, all of which even when performed perfectly can still result in catastrophe when sugar levels go too low or too high. Swings in blood sugar levels can cause mood changes, inability to concentrate, urgent cravings for sugary foods and can be debilitating – even fatal.”

In particular, Stancarone believes families with young children and infants who have juvenile diabetes struggle because children cannot always communicate what they are experiencing, leaving parents not knowing when to make any necessary adjustments to help their child function normally. “I’d like to encourage others to donate to this important cause at www.jdrf.org,” he added. “Even small donations are greatly appreciated and can go a long way.”
