Hi-I have a Koch & Korselt upright grand piano which I got from an old man who bought it second hand when he was 21 which was in 1936. It is black, has brass candlesticks, 13710 stamped on the inside on the left side inside the case and Model No 8 moulded on the steel frame behind the strings. It has 2 pedals and a lever on the left side next to the keys instead of the 3rd practise pedal. In gold lettering on each side of the name it says " Sole Agents South Africa, GA Fichardt Ltd, Bloemfontein, OFS" and Agente voor Suid Africa, GA Fichardt Ltd, Bloemfontein, OFS". I was wondering if anyone has any idea how old it is? Thanks Heather

If 13710 is the serial number, it would appear that the piano was manufactured in Reichenberg, Austria between 1915 and 1920.

Hi - thanks a lot - I had a piano tuner here on Monday and he said he would guess any time from 1915 but he wasn't absolutely sure.
