I have altered the spelling on your post, because correct spelling is sometimes important if you want to connect with other people about your subject. Isermann was not a piano maker, his factory made actions - the working parts of the notes. Is there another name on the piano? We may be able to tell you more if you post photos that show what the WHOLE piano looks like.

I would guess this is a German piano made in the late 1890s, possibly connected with H.Gorland who was in Hamburg in 1928. I have no other details so far. Useful general information about upright pianos, including German ones of the 1890s, may be found at

Some Gorland pianos illustrate 3 exhibition medals, so it is surprising how difficult it is to find information about the firm.
