I recently inherited a Needham upright piano and am interested in knowing how old it is. I found a number which I assume is the serial number and it is 275809.

If anyone knows the age or any other information, it would be greatly appreciated.

According to the Pierce Piano Atlas, your piano was made in 1913.

"Needham Piano C., Est. 1846, by Elias Parkham Needham. Located at 526 W 45th Street, New York. By 1920 the factory and offices were located at 520-524 48th Street, NY, and the company was controlled by Kindler & Collins."

Tha last serial numbers listed in Pierce were produced in 1928.

Regards,
