John Spencer piano in Spain

Post by Carlos_Mpv » 02 Jun 2015, 11:55

Hello everyone, British neighbors. I´m from Spain. I have got a piano of John Spencer and I have no idea about its history. I want to know the year of manufacture, some information about the original candlestick and a little of the history of the brand John Spencer & Co. Thank you for all the information that you can give me.

It looks like a typical Edwardian piano as shown at
but the number suggests that it was made in 1894.

The design of the sconces (candle-holders) is impossible to know, you can find a little information on them and on Spencer at
