John Hallerton and Son

Post by Norfolktolancashire » 05 Mar 2008, 10:32

We inherited a John Hallerton and Son upright piano years ago. It has the number 22290 on the top left of the iron frame and also on the inside of one of the mahogany wood panels. The centre front panel has a decorative inlay panel.
Despite searching we have found no clues as to the manufacturer and age of this piano.
Can anyone help on this matter?

Some of these were sold by Crane & Sons, so it may be a name they used, but we have found no trace of a real maker by that name so far.

Hello.. Oddly this is the only reference to this brand piano I have also received. What would be the best way to search for other information use this other brand name? The numbers I have found on the inside pannel are 19B, RDNo 291609.

Thank you...
Cherie

Those two do not appear in our lists of dated frame markings, have you looked at my Datemarks page at www.pianohistory.info ?

Hey I have one too!
I was wondering given that this forum is from 2008 if any new information has been found on this piano?
So it was made in 1900
And it's a brand piano from crane and sons?

It would be realy cool to see some videos of other John Hallerton and Son pianos as I LOVE the sound of mine 😊😍

Tom, you obviously didn't connect me with the forum, but I think if anything new had come up, I would have told you in answer to your email. As I said, this is more like a twenties piano than 1900. I have no evidence of any piano firms called Hallerton in London. Around 1900, it was just John Hallerton, the "& sons" is later.
