It seems odd spelling, like a Chinese idea of a German name, there are a few around, modern, but I don't know anything about them. Interestingly, the only one on Google Images was spelt wrongly! To quote my page at

Some people are disappointed if their piano does not have a name on the front, but many piano names are meaningless anyway. People have come to regard the internet as the ultimate fount of knowledge, but I have over 80,000 piano and music names on file. The majority of them are not listed on the internet, and many are not real makers.

Thanks for sharing the photos. It seems a typical London piano of the first few years of the 1900s. Are there any numbers easily visible inside the top?
