Steinway & Sons Vintage Model “S” Baby Grand


Type: Grand

Size: 5' 1"

Year: 1936

Finish: Mahogany Satin Lacquer

Serial No.: 284663

Series: Handcrafted Grand

Many people feel that the Steinway pianos produced in the first two-thirds of the 20th Century were superior to what came from the factory later, especially after the company was purchased by CBS in 1972.


Our 1936 “S” is from that era when the Steinway family still controlled all aspects of manufacturing.  It is rare to find one in original condition from this period that does not need to be rebuilt.


But this particular piano appears to have seen only light use and was well maintained.  Cosmetically, the ivory keytops and ebony sharps are intact and the hand-rubbed mahogany satin lacquer finish has aged gracefully.


This will be a wonderful instrument for someone looking for an original vintage Steinway that does not need to be rebuilt yet.  Although this is Steinway’s smallest grand, the fullness and richness of the tone belies its size.
