Brewer piano from George C. Bedwell

Post by jgmtennessee » 01 Mar 2018, 04:47

i have a piano i traded for some cabinet work and i could use some help with information if someone can. i have pictures i can send via e-mail or text. it is a Samuel Brewer & Co London piano and another embossed label says From GEORGE C. BEDWELL Musical instrument Warehouse Cecilia House Hills Road CAMBRIDGE. It is an upright grand (i think) burl wood, inside is the serial number 16111 S. BREWER&CO and another number SCB720. i want to restore it if it's appropriate and worth the restoration. it's a really nice piano(to me) and i would like to preserve it if it's doable. Has the original stool and the sheet music holder that folds out from the top. well carved woodwork. anyway i hope i could get some information on it. thanks in advance

Me again! I have already answered this by email. It looks like something from the 1880s, perhaps around 1882.

I have been approached by a descendant of the Bedwells, who would like to get in touch with you. My contact details should be displayed on the right.
