Would anyone have any information on SCRINE piano forte makers, or know of a piano in existence?

1910~ is the estimated date of piano #11723, which bears the name Henry D. Scrine. I tuned this piano for an elderly couple in Essex in 1990. The action was imported from F. Langer, Germany, suggesting a date before the 1914 war.
1928 Our Musique Adresses Universel lists Scrine, London: W.P, Scrine & Co., 89, Dawes Road, Fulham SW. & 4, Gowan Avenue, Munster Road, Fulham SW. Sold pianos and organs, not listed as a maker.

I know this is a long time after your original post, but if you are still out there you may be interested. I have a harmonium which bears the maker's name Henry D Scrine, 48 Dawes Road, London SW.
I have been trying to sell this on eBay, with no takers. Basically we are moving house and the new house has no space for it. If you are still interested in acquiring an instrument with your family name on it, now is your chance!
