Steinway was established in 1853 and they have built without a doubt some of the finest pianos in history. For the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition in 1876 the Steinway that was presented was the most elaborate Steinway built up to that date. This identical instrument from 1875 comes from the Bloemendaal Castle in Beernem (BE), purchased in 1983.
