Kirkman Baby Grand No 56277

Post by lupacexi » 03 Jul 2017, 08:00

Is there a listing of dates made that I could view? My friend does not play and though the action including dampers seem in good condition - it is very out of tune - and the case bleached by the sun. Any ideas of date it was made?
Thanks for any help

My Numbers page
explains that most pianos cannot be reliably dated purely on the basis of numbers. It might be around 1937. If you can post photos here to show what the whole piano looks like, or email them to me to post, I may be able to tell you more.
