28086 Spencer piano

Post by Greensnail »

Hi. I have an upright John spencer & co piano with the number 28086 on the inside. It also has some sort of initials and the date 1926 written on the inside in pencil. I’m wondering if you are able to give me any information about my piano. Thank you. From kirsty

On this forum and on my own website, I think it is fair to say that we receive more enquiries about Spencer than any other make, so they must have produced a lot of pianos. It is not always easy relying on numbers for dates, but with Spencer upright pianos, it is simply a matter of opening the top, and you should see the serial number. This one suggests that it was made in 1898.
Armed with nothing more than a number, I can't tell you anything about the piano, and no archives are available from the makers.
If you can post photos here to show what the whole piano looks like on the outside, I may be able to tell you more.
