"A Saffell & Martin piano has come into my possession. Under the brand it reads "Dale End Birmingham". I know absolutely nothing about it. Is there any value or history behind it? -Thank you for your time "
"Is anyone familiar with the English piano makers "Saffell and Martin"? I have a 3/4 upright antique English piano with that name on it from Dale End, Birmingham. I am curious to the age and value of this instrument. I've searched everywhere and can't find a single piece of literature on this piano (maker). Help! Thanks!"
