The Style 1

Designed by C.F. Theodore Steinway, the Style 1, commonly referred to as the ‘Monitor’ (a reference to ironclad warships used during the U.S. Civil War) was first produced in 1871. The piano features a sectional case with a square rear corner in the tail of the cabinet. The cabinet features Rococo style carved details and a double linear molding around the bottom of the case. The legs are carved cabriole legs with scroll feet and hidden casters. The music desk is of filigree style. The Monitor was the first Steinway grand with a 20-note bass section, a full cupola cast iron plate, and a continuous soundboard bridge.

Rococo Style

Rococo is an exceptionally ornamental and theatrical style of architecture, art and decoration which combines asymmetry, scrolling curves, gilding, white and pastel colors, sculpted molding, and trompe l'oeil frescoes to create surprise and the illusion of motion and drama. It is often described as the final expression of the Baroque movement. The word rococo was first used as a humorous variation of the word rocaille. Rocaille was originally a method of decoration, using pebbles, seashells and cement, which was often used to decorate grottoes and fountains since the Renaissance
