Chappell & Company
Chappell & Company was established in London in 1811 by Samuel Chappell, Johann Chappell, and Francis Latout. The three gentlemen were already partners in a music publishing business, and they started out retailing pianos in their music store. In the 1840 the company started building their own pianos. During the late 19th Century, Chappell imported and sold organs by the American manufacturer Clough & Warren. In 1901, the piano manufacturing and music publishing departments of the business became separate, and production of pianos was increased.
