I recently received a square piano (pianoforte) made by JB Jones in Philadelphia - I can't find any information on the manufacturer anywhere. Does anyone know when they were producing square pianos and any idea what the value might be - it has a beautiful flame mahogany exterior and is in fabulous condition, but I am guessing that it's only valuable as a piece of furniture and not as a piano. Can anyone help me out? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks.

Try asking a local history museum (deal with the archivist) in Philadelphia. The city directories will certainly tell you something and possibly the museum archivist can find much more. If you can't find the museum or its address on the web, look for a museum directory at your library.
