  1. Thank you very much for this list. Is there a single series of Serial Numbers for ALL models of Ivers & Pond Pianos, of any model? For example, is the above list equally useful for looking up Ivers & Pond upright pianos and grand pianos? (If not, I have an Ivers & Pond upright No. 78544).
    Also -- is there any index of further information somewhere? For example, what wood(s) is my piano No. 78544 made of, who made it, etc? What do the small "S" on one of the bolts, the name "Kelly", and/or the number "30" -- all on the lower-half of the cast-iron harp -- mean? etc.
    Most important, though, is my question about whether your list of serial numbers applies to my upright (or is it only for the grand pianos?)
    Thanks again!

    1. Hi Scott,
      Thanks for message. Details for these lists are limited to giving an approximate date of a piano. I cannot help you with what wood the case is made from. It would be fairly safe to say the serial numbers given cover grands as well as uprights.
      As to the letters and numbers on the lower part of the iron frame: If they are part of the casting, they most likely refer to the model design and the foundry where the frame was cast.
      Alas, this do not add much to the picture, but serial numbers can only be a guide to the age of the piano.
      Best wishes for now...
