As far as I am aware, Spaethe is one of many makers whose numbers are not published. If your tuner thinks it is safe to remove the action (the working parts of the notes) it may be marked on the back with the action makers' name and number, and I may be able to date this. If you can post photos here to show what the WHOLE piano looks like on the outside, unobscured by stools, dogs, vases etc., I may be able to estimate the date.
