Steinway Duoart Pianola Piano

Built: 1914
Serial number: 166947
Mechanism: Aeolian Duo-Art (full)
Height: 1.36 m

An excellent Steinway & Sons Duo-Art Vertegrand type K piano, finished in New York on May 29, 1914. The case was designed in noble mahogany. The instrument was very extravagantly and faithfully refurbished. Thanks to the Duo-Art reproducing technology, the opuses of great pianists and composers sound wonderfully - despite its 1.36 m of height, it has a sound like a grand piano.
