A Rare 1918, Steinway Model R Upright Piano For Sale with a Black Case
A rare 1918, Steinway Model R upright grand piano with a black case and cut-out front panel. Piano has an eighty-eight note keyboard and three pedals. The Steinway Model R was designed around 1900. It is larger than the Model K and has the "Upright Grand String Frame" with "Capo d'astro Bar" stamp on the frame. The Steinway Model R was only made in the Hamburg factory. Production in Hamburg of the Model R was discontinued in 1942
Interestingly, two Steinway Model R upright pianos were among five Steinways bought to decorate the RMS Titanic. They were ordered from Steinway & Sons in London and according to serial numbers they were shipped in 1911. Two Model R upright pianos and a Model B Drawing Room grand piano were selected to furnish the area for First Class passengers. These models were seen as the pinnacle of Steinway design in the 20th century. One of the Model R uprights was situated in the Boat Deck entrance of the Grand Staircase, with the other positioned in the Dining Saloon on D Deck. The pianos were fastened securely to the ship’s floors. At the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean lie relics with the name "Steinway & Sons".
