Millard Piano, London

Post by Daniree » 02 Mar 2018, 13:48

Hi all,

I have a Millard, London piano and I'm trying to understand it's history. The piano also has Clark's Ltd, Guildford, Woking and Basingstoke on it an a couple of serial numbers: 6788 by the strings, and 2963 which is on the wooden panel casing the piano.

Is anyone able to help me to understand a little more about the piano please?

Hi! My Names page
explains that many piano names are meaningless, and it was quite common to write "London" on them even when they were not real makers, and not in London. Millard London pianos were sold by various dealers around the country, but I have so far been unable to trace a real maker by that name. I will have a look through my files, THE WORLD'S LARGEST DIRECTORY OF PAST UK PIANO FIRMS and see what may have turned up recently. It would help if you could post photos here to show what the whole piano looks like on the outside, unobscured by dogs, stools, vases etc.. Alternatively, you can email them to me to post.
