this may help...from the Pierce Piano Atlas:

"Weser Bros. Est. 1879 by John A Weser and his brother W.S.Weaser, at N.Y> By the 1920's the office and factory were located at 520-528 W 43rd St N.Y. Made Weser Bros., Weser, Billings and Co., Coloniet, Marveola, Re-Rendo, Orpheola, and Winfield. After the mid 1930's the Weser name was used on pianos made by Winter & CO., Story & Clark, and Kohle & Campbell."

According to the serial #'s listed here, it looks like your piano was from between the years 1900 and 1902.

Sorry, I could not tell you. Your best bet would be to get a piano technician to take a look at it.
