Joseph Gramer, Boston Mass.

Post by cte28741 »

I have an old upright piano that has Joseph Gramer Boston on the top right hand side also with 8132 out to the side of it. On the front it has "GRAMER" BOSTON, USA . THERE IS SOME WRITING AT THE TOP WHEN YOU OPEN IT UP, THE WRITING HAS THE DATE 4-4-27 W/A SIGNATURE I CAN'T READ. THERE IS ANOTHER WRITING THAT STATES ARRIVE OR ARRIVED APRIL 9TH 1903. THIS WAS WROTE ON THE LARGE BRASS PIECE AT THE TOP. THERE ARE LARGE NUMBERS ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE THAT SAYS 96. COULD YOU TELL ME WHAT THESE DATES MEAN? OR WHEN THIS PIANO WAS MADE? THIS PIANO WAS IN A CHURCH. NEEDS SOME MINOR REPAIRS. PLEASE REPLY!!! ON THE FRONT IT HAS SCROLL TYPE CARVINGS IN EACH CORNER WITH DECORATIVE MOLDING AROUNG IT.

DEAR SIR,
COULD YOU PLEASE SEND THOSE DATES & NUMBERS SO THAT I MAY FURTHER MY RESEARCH ON THIS PIANO. IT REALLY IS A BEAUTIFUL PIECE. I WOULD LIKE TO RESTORE IT IF POSSIBLE, BUT WOULD LIKE TO KNOW AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ABOUT IT SO THAT WOULD HELP WITH THE RESTORATION. I DO NOT PLAN TO SELL MY PIANO. MY FAMILY HAS BEEN GIVEN THE GIFT OF MUSIC & THE EAR FOR MUSIC. SO IT WILL BE MOST ENJOYABLE TO US IN OUR FAMILY GATHERINGS & CHURCH FELLOWSHIPS. THANKYOU KINDLY FOR YOUR PROMPT REPLY.
YOURS TRULY,
TERESA

Hello my family are descendants of the Gramer’s who built those pianos. I know it’s been years but I am searching for one and would wonder if you would like to message me privately to discuss any arrangements I could make. I know you said it’s not for sale but I would like to discuss options of replacing it. Shot in the dark but this would be the ultimate gift to my grandfather who doesn’t get out much but always had a piano growing up.
