Phenomenal Hand Painted, Rosewood Art Case Steinway “A” 6’1″ Grand Piano made in the Steinway & Sons Hamburg, Germany Factory in 1900. We have nicknamed this the “Prince’s Love Piano” because of the Romantic Pastoral Scenes painted on the piano and the “Love Story” that they appear to tell. From what we can determine after it was made this piano was sold and shipped to a Prince in La Tour-de-Peilz, Switzerland. (We totally rebuilt & restored it during the summer and fall of 2015) It appears that after purchasing the piano he commissioned a master artist to create the beautiful custom romantic scenes, which appear to tell a “Love Story”.
It seems that the Prince wanted to immortalize the love between himself and his lover with this masterful work of art. We had an art historian evaluate the paintings and she said, “The paintings on the case are “Vernis Martin” style scenes depicting pastoral scenes of love and romance following the manner of fashionable painters of the mid-18th century, and with gold painted scrolling tendrils and colored flowers and garlands on the case and legs. “Vernis Martin” was an 18th century technique named for the Martin brothers of Paris, who were instrumental in development and refinement of lacquer in the style of Asian lacquer”. The previous owner’s Aunt bought it at the Sotheby’s Auction House in London in the early 1920’s and said it came from the estate of a Prince. Steinway & Sons records confirmed that the piano was indeed purchased by someone in La Tour-de-Peilz, Switzerland. The art historian in her analysis of the piano said La Tour-de-Peilz is a small village on the northern shore of Lake Geneva between Vevey and Montreux. In the late 19th/early 20th century it was a favorite swanky holiday spot for European royalty.
The romantic pastoral scenes seem to convey some kind of love story especially the two lovers entwined on the lid and a younger version of them that are two baby angels also on the lid. The male figure has a crown of garlands and the woman has red hair and fair skin common for people from northern Europe. The piano itself is an incredible instrument probably one of the best and most expensive money could buy at the time. We just totally rebuilt the piano with a new a Alaskan Bouldoc Spruce soundboard and pinblock, new Hamburg Steinway wippens and new Steinway NY hammers and shanks. All new strings and Mapes bass strings. We also put on new dampers, put an age appropriate soundboard decal on the soundboard and regilded the plate. The action was just regulated to concert stage performance level. The tone is a rainbow of sublime tones. We had two professional artists restore the original art scenes and it is just an incredible instrument and work of art. This is truly a one in a million Steinway.

10% of the final sale price will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Long Island Chapter. We just installed a state of the art PianoDisc IQ Player System that runs off an iPAD into this masterpiece so even if you don’t play the piano you can enjoy the sounds of piano music emanating from this magnificent totally rebuilt & restored work of art. We nicknamed this the “GREEN CHI” Steinway because the “Chinoiserie Style” Art landscape scenes painted on the piano are of gardens you would visit in 16th century China to restore your “Chi” or life force energy.
The piano is completely covered with beautiful detailed paintings of rocks (symbolizing mountains which represent “Chi”) gardens, trees, flowers, water, birds, butterflies, fisherman, pagodas, bridges, swans, royal family members, musicians and dancers. The colors used are shades of natural green, brown, red and gold. People in the 1500’s in China would go this this kind of place to get away from the busy city life to restore, revitalize, relax and rejuvenate themselves.
This Steinway M was originally manufactured in 1918 in the NYC Steinway & Sons Factory and was purchased by a wealthy family in Buffalo NY. The family commissioned a master of Chinoiserie art to create the original one-of-a-kind series of paintings on the piano. When Sonny’s Pianos purchased the piano in was unplayable and the paintings were barely visible. It was totally rebuilt by Sonny’s Pianos Technicians during 2016. The art work was painstakingly restored over 9 months by a NYC based Master of “Chinoiserie Style” Art. The incredible detail and beautiful paintings on this piano are nothing short of a masterpiece. Indeed a oneof-a-kind masterpiece. Many of the paintings are embossed or raised thus giving the landscape scenes an in depth 3D appearance. It appears that you are looking into the scenes and can see trees and flowers and people in the distance. We had an analysis of the art work by Asian Art Historian Doctor Ann Barrott Wicks.
The piano was rebuilt with the highest quality materials currently available including new strings, pinblock, dampers and new Steinway NY action parts. It has the original excellent condition set of ivory keys and Steinway soundboard. The action was regulated and hammers voiced to concert stage performance level. Here is some of what the art historian said. “Beautifully decorated. The design elements are inspired by Willow pattern ceramics but they are based on actual Chinese motifs. The scenes on the piano are based on Chinese landscape paintings and gardens. The basic elements of a Chinese landscape—mountains, water, trees, and humans—are meant to convey a microcosm of an orderly world. Traditionally, mountains, the most important element of a Chinese landscape painting, are a source of qi 气 (pronounced “chee”), or life-restoring essence. Chinese gardens are designed as three-dimensional landscapes, where people can go if a trip to the mountains isn’t practical. In a Chinese garden, eccentric rocks represent the mountains. Numerous examples of these rocks are painted on the piano. Wealthy men collected these odd rocks for their gardens; the most famous rocks are from Lake Tai near Suzhou. Thus, the garden is a miniature landscape where one can restore his vital essence.
