A 1912, Steinway Vertegrand upright piano for sale with a quartered walnut case. Cabinet features carvings of rolling waves, strapwork and beading highlighted with gold. Piano has spiral, fluted Sheraton legs also carved with waves and leaves, highlighted with gold. Piano has an eighty-eight note keyboard and two pedals. Piano was commissioned for the RMS Olympic Liner, sister to the Titanic and waslocated in the first class, a la carte area of the ship.

RMS Olympic was a British ocean liner and the lead ship of the White Star Line's trio of Olympic-class liners. Olympic had a career spanning 24 years from 1911 to 1935, in contrast to her short-lived sister ships, Titanic and Britannic. Olympic was the largest ocean liner in the world during 1910-13. Olympic was designed as a luxury ship. Titanic's passenger facilities, fittings, deck plans and technical facilities were largely identical to Olympic, although with some small variations. The first-class passengers enjoyed luxurious cabins, and some were equipped with private bathrooms. First-class passengers could have meals in the ship's large and luxurious dining saloon or in the more intimate A La Carte Restaurant. There was a lavish Grand Staircase, built only for the Olympic-class ships, along with three lifts that ran behind the staircase down to E deck, a Georgian-style smoking room, a Veranda Café decorated with palm trees, a swimming pool, Turkish bath, gymnasium, and several other places for meals and entertainment.
Steinway Records show the piano left the Hamburg factory unfinished and was sent to their London branch and decorated by Harland & Wolff's interior decoration company Aldam Heaton in Louis XVI style with gilt carvings.
Aldam Heaton & Co 28 - 29 Baker Street was the interior designer on the Olympic. Heaton (1828-97) established a partnership with Richard Norman Shaw and was part of William Morris' circle. He also edited four volumes on 18th-century furniture.
