It is a George Russell London, with sole sales concessionairs J B Cramer Ltd, sold by J Greenwood & Sons of Guildhall, Preston.
Stamped in the seemingly gold painted iron frame is the following, working from left to right:-
Top Line:- GOLD MEDAL BRUSSELS EXHIBITION
Second Line: EST 1842 MODEL 2 No 2S235
It is a dark wood
Any ideas please?
If you open the top and look inside, you should find some numbers that might help us determine the date.
Is there any chance you could post photos here to show us what the WHOLE piano looks like? Or you could email them to me to post.
The serial nr is as I put in original post. There is no letter prefix. All details stamped in to the frame are as I noted earlier too.
If you could email photos to me, that might give me more idea what sort of piano we are talking about. Otherwise, you can open the photos in the Paint programme, resize to 25% and save them under different names.

I have a question about a George Russell upright piano we've found in Germany. The number is 12218, it is a beautiful piece. The only problem is the instrument hasn't got the original strings any more. The new strings don't match the instrument (it doesn't have an iron-frame) so it is really necessary to find a similar reference piano. I am for any information thankful! Cheers, Frida
