One of the most illustrious groups of 19th Century American piano manufacturers was that of Adam Stodart, J. B. Dunham and Horatio Worcester.
Stodart Piano Company: After 1875, the prestigious “Stodart” brand name went through a vague trail of transfers and ownerships. In 1892, “The Stodart Piano Company” was registered with trademark in New York City. The firm was located at Southern Boulevard and Trinity Avenue. The Stodart Piano Company built a full line of upright pianos and baby grand pianos, adding player pianos to their line after the turn of the century. By about 1910, the Stodart Piano Company was one of the largest makers of upright player pianos in New York City, and their pianos were distributed around the country. Stodart pianos were known to be very well made, durable pianos and were sold at affordable prices. By about 1920, The Jacob Doll Piano Company took control of Stodart.
Sadly, after a long and celebrated history, the Stodart name was discontinued in 1931 when The Jacob Doll Piano Company went out of business due to The Great Depression.
