Due to the succes of the upright piano in Germany, Theodore Steinweg recommended that his family in New York manufacture upright pianos there as well. Steinway & Sons began making them in 1861.

After the death of two of his brothers, Theodore Steinway left for New York to support the company there. He had a huge influence on the further development of the upright piano in the US. In 1985, for the 150 th annuversery of their company, Grotrian Steinweg built a series of jubilee pianos with the same design as this upright.
