21488 will belong to production year 1911/12. Quite exactly 100 yrs old. According to J.U. Witter, "Das Klavier-Lexikon".

"OP" will be "opus", works number, serial number.

Value depends on type of piano, upright? Small one? Big one?

..or a grand? Small? medium? concert size?

..and technical status, to be best evaluated by a competent piano technician.

BTW there is a book written by Mr. Carhart, "The Piano Shop on the Left Bank".

A lovely story about Paris and pianos and men loving pianos and and a vowed community of piano aficionados. The writer is then "allowed" (..) to buy an old Stingl piano.

An implicite story about piano history and a very personal approach about which meaning a piano may have in a men's life.

Very pleasing reading stuff.
