Stinton & Westphal

Post by Bill Kibby » 05 Oct 2005, 23:30

In the 1920s, there were several music firms in Berlin called Westphal, including Robert Westphal (established 1894) and firms called Stinton in Berlin & London, but I have no record of the two names together. If you know how to remove the action (the working parts of the notes) safely it may have the action makers' name and number on the rear, and we may be able to date the piano. Otherwise, see

I would imagine this was made around 1898. With a German piano, the best hope is that the action (the working parts of the notes) may be marked on the rear with the action makers’ name and number, and we may be able to date this. However, removing the action can be risky in an old piano, and you may need your tuner’s help.

Another detail I discover when dismount the Piano: I Think the Original color was Brown (Wood).
Thanks
