C. Scotcher and Son upright

Post by bbaugh66 » 07 Mar 2020, 18:17

Hi,

I acquired the above piano and im looking for any info i can get on it. Its got the number 2218 stamped on it in a few places. I have pics if anyone wants to take a look. I want to restore it just for the experience and I don't know anything about pianos. All I can say is its beautiful and very old.
Thanks.

The photos would tell me more than the name. You can email them to me to post if it is easier. The "& Son" became plural in the 1890s, which suggests a Victorian piano, so have a look at
