Interestingly, two Steinway Model R upright pianos were among five Steinways bought to decorate the RMS Titanic. They were ordered from Steinway & Sons in London and according to serial numbers they were shipped in 1911. Two Model R upright pianos and a Model B Drawing Room grand piano were selected to furnish the area for First Class passengers. These models were seen as the pinnacle of Steinway design in the 20th century. One of the Model R uprights was situated in the Boat Deck entrance of the Grand Staircase, with the other positioned in the Dining Saloon on D Deck. The pianos were fastened securely to the ship’s floors. At the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean lie relics with the name "Steinway & Sons".
