F. Steiner

Post by microinfo » 28 Apr 2019, 20:01

Hi everyone, I am Italian and I inherited a piano. Unfortunately I can't understand his story. I searched the brand on the internet but could not find anything. Can you help me ?
The brand is: "F. STEINER"

Thank you

The serial number won't help unless someone has published dates for Steiner's numbers. If you want to search inside the piano for clues, have a look at
