I have just bought a Mason and Risch Baby Grand 5'0". The serial that shows is 9033. I have been trying to get an idea of the age of the piano but the only serial numbers I have seen are 5 numbers and I wonder if there is anyone here who has a clue as to the date of manufacture. It has been basically unused for 15 years and seems to be in very good shape, apart from being out of tune. I will tune it up and hopefully have a decent piano to play.
I appreciate any info. Someone in an earlier post mentioned that perhaps Mr Silverwood would be a good source of information about such things.
Thanks in advance.

It may be your serial number is incorrect. That serial number would make you piano
manufactured in 1899. Mason & Risch did not make a 5'0" grand then. I currently have
4 Mason & Risch grands in my shop. They are all 5 digit serial numbers and all 5'8" built between 1907 and 1935.
