St. Louis Piano Manufacturing Company
The St. Louis Piano Manufacturing Company was established in 1864 by Richard J. Compton, President, and William Curtis, Secretary. The firm was an active maker of square grand pianos in St. Louis, Missouri. Their factory was located at 837 – 839 South 5th Street with warerooms at 5th & Locust Streets. By the 1870’s the firm was producing an average of 300 pianos annually. Pianos built by The St. Louis Piano Manufacturing Company were known to be elaborate, high quality instruments often made of lavish and exotic woods.
In addition to building the “St. Louis Piano Manufacturing Company” brand name, the firm built an award winning line of square grand pianos under the “Bell Treble” name. Pianos built by the firm are quite scarce today, and rarely found outside of the Midwestern United States. The St. Louis Piano Manufacturing Company went out of business in 1883.
