Piano Brands Library

A comprehensive library of piano brands

Our extensive library of piano brands in the 19th and 20th centuries tells the story of how each company was founded, the characteristics and exceptional features of each piano they produced as well as the restored value of a piano manufactured by that brand.

We take you on a tour through the last two centuries of piano making, sharing rare snapshots of original advertisements, blueprints and photos. Our historical knowledge of pianos and curated collection of antique piano collateral has been built over the last four decades as a family business restoring pianos.

19th and 20th century piano history

The value of a piano is influenced by its place in history, the brand and the makers as well as the quality of the materials. Knowing these details about your piano is critical to making the decision to restore it or not. At Lindeblad, we’ve been restoring pianos for four generations and enjoy teaching our customers about the rich history of pianos in the last 200 years.
