I presume the word means Princesses.

Dear Lady Bird, this is an example of the correct typographical use use of the "long S" which was quite common in all Western European Languages in the 18th and 19th century, and was only abandonned quite recently in France because the long S looks too much like an f.

If you are interested : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_s
Interesting Vikendios and I just thought that it was a case of where English spelling had not yet become standardized.
For example at different times the name of the poet was spelt
Shakespere, Shakspere, Shakespeare, and even Shaxspere ?
(from the Rampart Lion )
Perhaps I should have done Latin at high school ?

My 2 cents,

Rich, I am curious about Shadd.
If I was around DC I might be able to check myself, but not in near future.
What does he sell then? I accidentally discovered his site few weeks ago and thought this is very small boutique that started with MIDI hybrid but now builds real acoustic grands. Does he just put a label on pianos built somewhere else?
Thanks.

I've explained the tuning forks Yamaha logo more than once to people who have their other products. They're often surprised.

Yes Ravenscroft does not make many pianos, but they are very high end .Imagine choosing Sauter's iron plates for thier pianos
when you think of it there are so many manufacturers to choose from and they chose Sauter . 🤔

Simply gorgeous. Definitely number one for me. Never saw a Bosie in real life yet, but look at that font and the subtle bronze tone variations in that picture!

(Said bronze but I actually have no idea what material is used for these logos).

Of the higher quality brands, the only logo that I'm not a fan of is the Shigeru Kawai logo. I don't care for the long tails on the some of the characters, however that would never stop me from playing or owning one of them. I think they are some of the finest pianos that I have had the opportunity to play. I'm definitely a fan of their pianos! [Linked Image]

And not cheap ones. But they do not show where they actually build them. They say they have a small factory in Brooklyn, NY, but they may just put final touches there.

Even owning a Steinway, it wasn't until recently that I realized there is an ampersand in the middle of the Steinway lyre and that the sides of it were actually 2 S's - one backwards making it symbolize S&S. Funny how something can be staring at you in the face and you don't see it.

I think the subtle bronze tone variation might be tarnish. grin A little metal polish and it should be shiny bronze all the way through. At least that's what happens to my Petrof logo from time to time. It gets a little brown in parts so I know it's time to shine it again!

They are bought from Hailun in China. My guess is that Hailun even rebadges them with the logo in China.

NPR did a programme on Shadd. There they claimed to "build" pianos.

Based on these pictires they probably do some assembly, buffing, and apply stickers:
