Robert Cocks & Compny (Yes that is how it is spelled)
To her most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria,
H. R. H. The Prince of Wales, &
His imperial Majesty the Emperor Napoleon III,
6, New Burlington ST. Regent ST. London, W.
& 4, Hanover Square, London.
I also found a number that was stamped on each part; 528. And one written inside below the stamped number; 2528. It is a burl wood upright with metal candle holders on each side. It is in good shape. Playable. I have pictures. I just wish to know if it is something special as it seems, or if it is just another old and beautiful piano. I am not looking to sell it. But I would like to know if it has any value. Please contact me right away if you have any info for me. Thank you, Scott USA

This is in India, and was owned by a British lady in Bangalore from whom my parents bought this Piano.
as well as the notes on Cocks near the bottom of the page at
However, around 1902, Robert Cocks & Co. moved from New Burlington Street to Erard's old premises at 18 Great Marlborough Street, and this suggests that your piano was made before then. In 1904, Cocks & Augener were united under the name of Augener Ltd., and it is presumed that Cocks & Co. ceased to exist as such. Some Cocks pianos made around the 1890s had similar name transfers, but they also referred to Napoleon III, who died in 1873. It would still be helpful to me to know if there are any numbers written inside the top of the piano.
