Bluthner 1873 5’5” Grand Piano in High Polish Ebony | $24,900.00
This German made 1873 Bluthner 5’5” piano (serial number 11401) This piano was discovered in Germany last year and has been lovingly refurbished to show off the beautiful tones of what a Bluthner was designed to be. It has a very sweet European sound and the touch of this piano is nothing less than exceptional.
Since 1853 the name Bluthner has been synonymous with prestige and quality. There was no doubt once this piano was discovered and assessed that it would become a prime candidate for a beautiful refurbishment.
Obviously, the cabinet has been completely refinished throughout. The original cabinet must have been a wood finish but our designers decided to go with high polish ebony and the result was amazing. The pin block restored, new pins and new strings installed, the plate has been refinished, the soundboard restored, necessary action parts have been replaced, new hammers, restored and/or replaced hammer shanks, and the belly work and trap work (pedals and lyre) have been restored.
Steffes and Schulz GmbH of Weisbaden Germany are responsible for the refurbishments of this piano.
