G.H Sherborne Piano

Post by lgabriel » 26 Feb 2018, 16:01

Hi there!

We are trying to learn more about our piano but can't seem to find any information on the internet, so I am hoping someone here might know more. It is an upright iron grand with the name G.H. Sherborne listed on the front. I have attached some pictures that I took of it. Any information we can find out would be great!

This looks like a typical Edwardian piano, as shown on my Edwardian page at
http://www.pianohistory.info/edwardian.html
Sherborne was bankrupt in the 1870s, but came back, and the business was still going in 1928. No dates of serial numbers are available, and as far as I am aware, he was only a dealer, so presumably bought the piano in from a wholesaler. If you want to search inside the piano for clues, have a look at
