Gerhard Adam Wesel

Post by e page »

Hi all
I wonder if it's possible to date my Gerhard Adam 5' grand? It has a serial number 23571, a Langer action number 542828 and a kluge keyboard number 354993.
Thanks

My Numbers page at pianohistory.info has dates for Langer action numbers which would put this around 1921, but Adam's serial numbers would put it at 1925, and this is more likely to be accurate.

Hi

I have today taken delivery of a Gerhard Adam upright piano which has a serial number of 22249.

Could anyone in the know give an estimate of the date please? Is it early 1920s?

Thanks for your help

Andrew

That number would suggest 1923, but my Numbers page
http://www.pianohistory.info/numbers.html
explains that dating pianos purely on the basis of numbers is often not as simple as it seems.

I’m standing in front of my parents’ piano which has the serial number 22251 ! Made the same week as yours? Same month? Wow!

It’s the piano I’ve played most in my life.
