I’m new on this Piano Forum.
I was able to get in the possession of an upright Piano, however I’m not able to find historical background information.
Also I have in mind to restore the piano so my youngest son can enjoy the pleasure of it.
The only info I have, is that the piano carries the name "Adolf Reisen".
If anyone could help me with the history of said Piano and where can I find the serial number, this would be great.
Please see attached picture.
You best clue is the dates of the exhibition medals shown next to the name, so have a look at
The piano will have been made after the last exhibition listed. Reisner received medals in the 1870s, but this piano looks more like 1890s.
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.
