Richard Lipp & Sohn Player Grand Piano
By Jack M. Conway

Hi group,  the Richard Lipp & Sohn player grand piano, serial number
36067, would have been made in 1914.  "Pierce Piano Atlas 10th Edition"
shows that 1914 starts with 35400 and 1915 starts with 36800.  At this
point the list becomes confused, with no listings for 1916-1919 and
listing 1920 as starting with 36670, a lower number than listed for
1915.  Manufacturing dates are listed form 1875 to 1997.

 "Lipp & Sohn, Rich., Est. 1831 Weigenburgerstrasse 32 Stuttgart,
  Germany.  Also made Ahlborn Organ.  From 1985 to 1992 pianos
  manufactured under license by The Bentley Piano Co. Ltd. and
  since 1993 by Whelpdale, Maxwell & Codd Ltd., London, England."
