Steinway & Sons
Steinway archives indicate that the piano completed manufacture on December 7, 1889 and subsequently sold to M. Steinert & Sons in Providence, R.I. There is no further information available.
I have owned the piano since the sixties and had it completely rebuilt and refinished with exception of the soundboard.
There is no evidence of the piano ever being exposed to any extreme or undesirable environmental conditions. It performs extremely well.
An approximate purchase price in 1898 would have been $ 1,100. The model A currently remains in production at Steinway & Sons and its current retail selling price is $ 68,900.
I am a professional arranger have used it to arrange many of the hit records I had with Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons as well as the Engelbert Humperdinck hit, After The Loving and Neil Diamonds hit, Sweet Caroline. For more information on Charles Calello see http://charlescalello.com
