Piano and Bench

This photograph by Bruce White depicts a 1938 Steinway piano and bench, a gift to the White House from Steinway and Sons of Long Island City, New York. This piano replaced an earlier piano given to the White House by Steinway in 1903. Gilded scenes of American dance forms appear on the Honduran mahogany case, which is supported by three gilded, eagle-shaped legs in the Art deco style. The piano is shown in the East Room of the White House.
