Inthe opinion of this technician/writer, this piano is, arguably, comparable toother high end brands such as Steinway & Sons, Wm. Knabe & Co.,and Sohmer, with a fair market valuation of >$3,500 sold as-is with an immediate future restoration, in view.
For a period of time, 1876 to the Great Depression, the "Golden Age" of piano making, the company hand made pianos and reed organs in addition to harps.

There should be a 'W' in front of the serial number, but then again maybe not. It's a 1932, a year when MOST of the piano manufacturers were out of business. Manufacturers went from over 300 in 1925, to just about 30 in 1932.

Lyon & Healy pianos were made in small numbers in order to supply the retail operation with only enough pianos to meet demand. They made an apartment grand, concert grand, and reproducing grand, among others. Even into the mid-1900s, the underlying focus of the company was on harp production, which is why Everett and eventually Steinway saw value in acquiring the company.

The vitality of the keyboard department, in which only instruments that use polyphonic writing are taught - piano, organ, harp and percussion, percussions - is undoubtedly largely due to the exceptionally wide and varied repertoire which is constantly being approached and performed in the light of contemporary insights.

To manufacturing his own pianos, Ignace Pleyel teamed up with Charles Lemme, who owned a workshop in Paris. This partnership only lasted a short time, a mere three years, before Pleyel set up his own workshop at the end of 1807. Increasingly absorbed by his piano manufacturing workshop, he gave up his publishing house in 1809. Unfortunately for Ignace Pleyel, the sale of instruments went through a major crisis shortly afterwards and he struggled to sell his instruments.
Without the financial help of his musician friends, such as Kalkbrenner, Rossini and Mehul, Pleyel pianos would have had an extremely short existence. In 1824, his son Camille joined him to take over all his sales activities. Ignace Pleyel gradually moved away from musical life and retired to his Somereau home near Paris.
In 1824, at the age of 35, Camille joined his father in the adventure of Pleyel pianos. Camille had taken advantage of his many trips to visit piano manufacturers, such as Broadwood, and he was inspired to improve his own pianos. The arrival of Camille was thus the herald of an in-depth reorganisation of the company, which quickly paid off. Indeed, as of 1825, his research and innovative work allowed the company to expand.
Led by passionate musicians, the Pleyel Company has always interacted with the artists of its time by associating them with its innovations. Often at the forefront, they have become classics. By 1825, the Pleyel father and son team filed a patent for the manufacture of "unichord pianos" (one string per note instead of the usual two or three).
In 1827, they presented their pianos at the Paris National Exhibition and were awarded a gold medal. They then became the official piano manufacturers of Louis Philippe, Duke of Orleans and future King of French.
Anxious to allow everyone to work on a Pleyel piano, he proposed, as of 1839, a square study piano with two sets of strings and six octaves of excellent quality, very solidly built and at a very affordable price.
Very quickly, his efforts paid off. A newspaper of the time quoted that Pleyel pianos were not only in major cities in Europe, but also in New Orleans, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Brazil, India and even Australia.
Associated with Camille Pleyel in 1853, Auguste Wolff became head of the company in 1855. Like the Pleyels, he was also from a family of musicians. Born in Paris in 1821, Wolff, a talented composer and an excellent musician, was awarded first prize in piano at the Paris Music Conservatory in 1839.
He had active entrepreneurial skills that allowed him to extend the work of Pleyel. He became an exceptional piano maker and contributed greatly to the development of the company, especially by the ingenuity and the quality of his innovations. 041b061a72
