AGE: Based on the serial number provided, the piano was built in 1927, the “Golden Age” of piano building in America.
GENERAL INFORMATION: The piano is made of imported Honduran Mahogany wood under the old deteriorated finish and is of the Traditional spade-leg style. These old finishes chemically break down and turn very dark over the years. The piano would be quite beautiful if professionally restored.
The piano appears to be in original, unrestored condition with the old worn strings and felt still present. The average piano has about a 40 – 50 year lifespan before the felts, leather and strings begin to deteriorate and need restoration. The fact your piano is in such good condition for its age is a real testament to the quality that went into building it! The piano would be quite beautiful if professionally restored.
