My wife has a beautiful old John Brinsmead and Sons upright grand that I would very much like to know a bit more about if possible. It apparently is a type W and had the serial numbers of 949 stamped on the two vertical wood frames in the back. Any help as to the year and relative value would be very much appreciated.
I could tell you more if you could upload photos here to show what the whole piano looks like, or you can email them to me.
Once again your help is very much appreciated.
I am sorry I missed your question about value. Nobody anywhere can guess the value or condition of a piano without inspecting it on the spot, and tuning it, so your local tuner is the best person to ask.
