If you are looking for a Steinway Model B for sale you are working along the right lines. Steinways are amazing pianos and the very first one, known as the Kitchen Piano, was built by Heinrich Englehard Steinway in the kitchen of his home in Seesen in Germany in 1836. That piano is currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Over the next ten years, Steinway built a further 481 pianos, which is getting on for one a week.
He and his family moved to the US in 1850 and Steinway and Sons was founded on March 5th 1853 on Varrick Street, Manhattan. The first piano built there was No. 483 and was sold to the Griswold family for $500. That piano is also on display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Heinrich Steinway died in 1871 aged 74, and by that time the company was making pianos at a rate of one every hour. The very first Model B was made in April 1878 and it is also known as “the perfect piano” which is another very good reason for looking for a Steinway Model B for sale.
